I'm Aries, a 20-year-old Canadian with a burning desire to improve the status of the web through software development. I began developing software when I was pretty young, at the age of eleven. I've done a lot of various things in those 9 years, from building Minecraft mods in Java to writing a lot of terrible PHP websites to where I am now.

Recently, I've been concentrating on using current languages like TypeScript to build web-based applications and services using React and Next.js, among other tools. Here are a few technologies I've been working with recently:

  • ElixirElixir is a dynamic, functional language for building scalable and maintainable applications.
  • PhoenixPhoenix is a framework written in Elixir to provide highly performant web applications.
  • TypeScriptA strongly typed programming language that builds on JavaScript.
  • Tailwind CSSA utility-first CSS framework for rapid UI development.
  • Next.jsA framework for server-side rendering and generating static websites using React and Node.js.
  • React.jsA JavaScript library for building user interfaces.
  • Node.jsA runtime built on Chrome's V8 JavaScript engine.
