Hello World

11 January 2016

I've been working at a small web agency in NYC for the past ~2 years. During my time here I've been fortunate enough to work on some amazing projects alongside some wonderful people.

With the start of 2016, I've decided to start blogging about the challenges and tools we use on a daily basis. My current focus is to try out React Native for Peeko. For those that don't know, Peeko is an app that lets you discover your local neighborhood from your phone. Get the latest news, deals, and events happening around you in realtime.

I'd like to rewrite the app in React Native as the current architecture has gotten to the point where each additional feature takes longer to add due to the technical debt. Add to the fact that there's a lot of UI bugs and it uses a CSS framework that is no longer active and you have yourself a codebase that is ready to be revamped.

So that's my start of 2016. I hope yours is good as well, and I look forward to sharing what i learn over the year.
