Hello, World!

Developer table

Jay Honnold

I am a full-stack developer with experience working in multiple web and backend frameworks. Throughout my career I have designed, built, and maintained both legacy and new projects. Being thorough in nature, I'm determined to write code that is elegant, maintainable, and secure.

Specifically, I have worked a majority of my frontend career in React, though Vue and Svelte seem quite interesting to me. On the backend I have worked equals parts in Spring and Express in combination with many different SQL databases. I'm always interested in learning more and welcome the idea of trying something new!
