Senior Software Engineer - Client Side Engineering
#JavaScript #Angular #FullStack

JavaScript has changed the way we build apps, not only on the web, but also on the desktop and on that device you have in your pocket or even on your wrist.  From Node to Electron, browsers and mobile, Angular and React, it’s become less about the language itself and more about the APIs and tools you can leverage to make the world a better place or to build useful, usable, well thought out applications.

JavaScript has changed the way we build apps, not only on the web, but also on the desktop and on that device you have in your pocket or even on your wrist.  From Node to Electron, browsers and mobile, Angular and React, it’s become less about the language itself and more about the APIs and tools you can leverage to make the world a better place or to build useful, usable, well thought out applications. 

The way we work is also changing.  With more users from all disciplines increasingly leveraging devices and high speed data to work together all over the world, the tools we’re building at ReadyTalk are increasingly important.
