Joe Sak

A software craftsman in Montréal with proficiency in test-driven Ruby and JavaScript. I'm currently dabbling in Java, Clojure, and Functional Programming. Please see my c.v.

I’ve been fascinated by computers since I was eight years old, and I began tinkering with code as early as age twelve.

Since 2005, I have worked professionally. Since 2009, I have contributed on GitHub when I can. Notable contributions include Refinery CMS and Spree Paypal Express.

My work emphasizes an awareness of the cost of long-term maintenance. This awareness is demonstrated through cleanly formatted and readable code; code that is tested first and guided by the SOLID principles for Object-Oriented software.

I am committed to delivering high quality software. I have high demands of myself and the projects that I sign off on.

Communicating across teams and with several stakeholders in the project is no problem for me. I'm friendly and empathetic, and my dedication to the customer experience compels me to contribute to more than just code discussions.

In my personal life, I read books, ride my bike, practice guitar, party with friends, ice skate, run, cook a mean chili, visit my family when possible, I'm learning French, and I want to travel to more places.
