Ryan Carniato, Creator of SolidJS and Principal Engineer at Netlify, has always had a love for music and tech. He set his punk rock dreams aside and settled down to become a full-time engineer.
Ryan started programming at the age of 11 and got his first job at eBay where he contributed to their top open-source project, Marko. After building his network and experience in open source, he landed a job with Netlify living many developers’ dreams of getting paid to work on open-source projects.
In this episode, Ryan talks to Chuck and Robbie about working on open-source projects, his experiences at eBay and Netlify, and his thoughts on TypeScript and inferred types versus explicit types.
