I am an enthusiastic and experienced speaker who enjoys presenting talks and workshops on front-end web development. These days, I primarily focus on JavaScript/TypeScript with a particular interest in React, State Machines, GraphQL, Node.js, and web performance. If you’re interested in having me speak at your event, please get in touch.


Jon is a software engineer, living in the beautiful city of Denver, Colorado. He began writing code when he was 10 years old; with the help of Geocities, Microsoft FrontPage, and a little bit of HTML Goodies, he started on the journey that’s led him to where he is today.

Over the last 15+ years, Jon has published countless lines of code that has been seen or encountered by millions. He is passionate about high performance, accessible websites that deliver rich experiences to their users.
