About Me

October 15, 2013

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.


Projects

I'm currently working on WebRTC. This involves XMPP (client and server sides), and a whole lot of JavaScript + Standards.

I've authored or contributed to a number of projects in MyPureCloud (by Genesys) such as iframe-screenshare and webrtc-troubleshooter, among others.

I contribute to SimpleWebRTC and some of the oTalk modules. I also have a series of projects and miscellaneous adventures.

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 software developer at a company called Genesys, where I work with WebRTC and JavaScript. I work with a variety of open source tools and libraries. I work mainly with Ember.js, Node, WebRTC, and lots of other web technologies and projects.

I like writing modular, reusable components, SMACCS (LESS), and focusing on building accessibility-minded HTML. I put a large focus on code review for maintainability, standards, and accessibility.

At my previous position, I worked in the .NET stack, primarily with ASP.NET MVC and Entity Framework, and I did a lot of javascript development. In the mobile world, we primarily used PhoneGap, with native iOS components for added functionality.

In my free time, I'm currently exploring LED effects with a motorcycle mounted Arduino and as always, reading about software development best practices and new ideas. I'm also an avid rock climber and cyclist. I climb a 5.11, boulder a V5, and my longest bike ride so far is 545 miles over seven days.

I'm on the web:
