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 11 years, from building Minecraft mods in Java to writing a lot of terrible PHP websites to getting 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:
Back in 2018 (just over 4 years ago!), I was the sole maintainer of this project, but as time went on, documenting the rapid changes in the VRChat environment became increasingly laborious.
As a result, I sought assistance from the community and assigned the majority of the work to fantastic volunteers who were prepared to devote time to the project in order to take it forward. Since then, we've constructed an automated mechanism for releasing SDKs in a variety of languages based on the OpenAPI definition, which we manage.
I learned about the monthly GitHub Discussion for posting Next.js job requests after joining the official Next.js discord. I was intrigued by the way they were leveraging GitHub Discussions, so I cracked open VS Code to design and develop an interface for all this great data that was made publicly available in a relatively nice fashion.
Prior to this project, I didn't have a professional web presence to show off my skills. Brittany Chiang's gorgeous portfolio served as a major inspiration for the design. I created a site in a few days using Next.js, Tailwind.css, and TypeScript.
I enjoy a challenge. I'll do my best to answer your message, whether it's a question or just a kind hello! Try your luck and message me.
