About the Author
Hi, I’m Kirk.
I’m a mostly self taught software developer, and the author of this site.
I’ve been building software for over ten years now, and enjoy building new things from scratch.
I’ve worked on everything from small startups to medical software.
Professionally, I’ve mostly built web applications and APIs, scaling some to millions of users.
I was the lead backend developer at Triller, scaling to the app from zero to millions of users, and handling the traffic from the top 100 iOS and Android stores at the same time.
Before Triller, I wrote the backend for a social app called Somebody which was also in the Top 100 free apps for the App Store, won an award for a site built for GE, helped design a lighting control system, and ran the infrastructure for a large eCommerce company.
