I'm a Front End focused Software Engineer, currently employed by Cisco in North Carolina.

I primarily work in Javascript and have experience with a variety of the frameworks and libraries in the JS ecosystem, including

  • KnockoutJS
  • jQuery
  • Coffeescript
  • AngularJS
  • Dojo

I also spend about 20% of my time working with Java, and am very comfortable with the core language, though less knowledgeable about the library ecosystem as opposed to Web Development.

I also like geeking out about tools and am very familiar with:

  • Sublime Text
  • GruntJS
  • Git
  • JSHint

When I'm not wrapped up in code I love playing basketball and board games. I'm a follower of Christ. Currently living with my wife Claire in Durham NC.

comment What's the standard practice to prevent users from having unreasonable expectations?
@SChepurin you're not making sense. I understand that you don't value my second point, but thats different from it being a contradiction :)

@JoeZeng true, which is why the terms of service aren't enough

why do they feel that way? I think you'll need to understand that before you can fix it. If some part of your marketing is misleading, figure out what it is. If your customers are just demanding their dream product regardless of what you've said, you may need to tell them "these are the terms, take it or leave it". If they can't accept that, they probably shouldn't be your customers.
