About

Hi! I'm Brandon Newton, a Full Stack Engineer who specializes in performant and responsive Frontend development.

I got my start building websites back in 2005/6. Thirteen year old me picked out a book on PHP and MySQL, and dove head first into web development. I built a CMS to host my artwork and animations, which probably consisted of a single 1000LOC index.php containing a single switch ($_GET['page']) { /* … */ }.

Fast-forwarding to the present, I've swapped out PHP for Node, and MySQL for PostgreSQL. I'm incredibly excited by Functional and Declarative Programming techniques. And I absolutely love building applications with React.js.

When I'm not nerding out on computer stuff, I love to spend time with my girlfriend Sophie. I'm really into playing guitar, rock climbing, skateboarding, and cooking for friends and family.

Shoot me an email if you want to say hi or have any questions!
