Mr. Courtney Christensen

Software Engineer

meet me

I'm passionate about software development. I consider myself a full-stack developer with a love for the front end. With professional experience since 2007 and thirst for learning, I'm ready to hit the ground running.

My expertise is creating webapps using modern web technologies (e.g. AngularJS / Backbone, HTML5, LESS / SASS). But don't worry, I'm right at home in classic, strongly-typed object-oriented languages, too. Start talking about building out REST APIs during the next sprint, and you're speaking my language. Need someone to champion those unit tests on the CI server? I'm your man.
