Hey there! I'm Ryan 👋
I'm currently a Front End Engineer at Guru in Philadelphia. I spend my days writing React to build our web app, browser extension and Slackbot. To the back end team's chagrin, I am also known to write a bit of Java.
Before joining Guru, I was part of the engineering team at RevZilla, an e-commerce site for motorcycle enthusiasts. While there I helped re-platform the site from Ruby on Rails to Elixir/Phoenix and build out a custom component engine.

What the heck is JSX?
Functional setState in React
In React, props and state are updated asynchronously. This makes their values unreliable when calculating state and can cause unexpected behavior.
