My name is Xander Dumaine. I want to help people be better people, and help software help people be better people. I believe in equality and diversity in all things. I climb rocks, read books, write code, and ride bikes.
I'm currently working on full stack web development using TypeScript, React, and AWS Lambda+Dynamo+more, while maintaining a ReactNative mobile application and its build+release pipeline. I also contribute to our CI/CD pipeline for full stack deployments (Web UIs/Lambdas/Monitors) and application telemetry (logging and analytics).
I did an interview podcast with UC Buyer about WebRTC in contact centers.

More about me
Since I've already graduated from college and working full time, I'm trying to improve my skills by working exploring new frameworks, languages, and projects.
I'm currently a Principal Software Engineer at a company called LifeOmic, where I'm working on full-stack web development with TypeScript, React (+Native), AWS Lambda, DynamoDB, Terraform, and more.
I like writing modular, reusable components, SMACCS (LESS/SASS), and focusing on building accessibility-minded HTML. I put a large focus on code review for maintainability, standards, and accessibility.
In my free time, I'm currently exploring woodworking and CNC machining.
