Profile - About Me

Tim Hunold

Developers take direction, engineers give directions. If you are looking for a code monkey, look elsewhere, 25 years of experience means I'll see the problems before you do, so don't second guess when my hair stands on end and I call something out for being stupid.

Contractors don't buy informercial tools to build your house, so you should not choose your technology on buzzwords, fear of missing out, or some dubious claim that some tech giant is making it the standard.

Knowing what you have helps you plan your way forward with proper taxonomy.


Outcome is more important than the tool, but why make it hard?

To the four corners

When's the last time your project worked cleanly across all viewports?

My Principles
Building something that is aimed at users and not about trying to impress with needless features is important to me.
Too often those that need a little extra help should be accomodated. The web is difficult to use of you require a screen reader or assistive technology.
Technology is a tool, not a reason. I choose stacks based on what gets it done cleanly and maintainable. Complexity pretending to be powerful is the enemy of all things holy, maintainable and affordable.
