William Wenge-Murphy

I'm a software engineer specializing in JavaScript

Whether it's React, Vue, or even vanilla ES5, I love to build sophisticated JavaScript applications and beautiful, responsive interfaces

I like to stay on the bleeding edge; I obsessively follow emerging standards and TC39 (ECMAScript) propsals.

Professional

Currently freelancing and available for new projects (Let's talk)

Previously, I worked for a few years at Runding Corporation on the Strukt project, a web-based, cross-platform project controls solution built on Node.js, used by clients including Walt Disney Imagineering and Westfield Group

Prior to that, I worked on the overhaul of the California state jobs system (Jobs.ca.gov), a project known as the Exam and Ceritification Online System.

Semi-Professional

While my professional expertise lies in web applications across the whole stack, some other technical areas I like to explore, for fun or profit, include compilers and interpreters, algorithmic art, procedural music generation, electronics and FPGAs, reverse engineering, retro-computing (especially the 6502), and cellular automata

I wrote my first computer program at age 10 and just. never. stopped. I started programming out of sheer intellectual curiosity, and after a lifetime of honing my craft I still find it incredibly fascinating.

Personal

I live in Sacramento, CA with my girlfriend and a really fluffy cat.

Ethical vegetarian of 22 years.

Passionately curious autodidact

Wannabe polyglot

I care about animal welfare, civil liberties, homeless issues
