The Grid

I’m finally able to share that I recently joined The Grid!

I feel proud to be a part of the team behind GSS, NoFlo, FlowHub, and more.

Backing the Future

I first encountered The Grid last year when I backed the NoFlo Development Environment on Kickstarter, and again a few months ago after working with Auto Layout on iOS.

At that time I was frustrated with web development and had sought refuge in producing native applications. Underwhelmed by the current landscape, I wondered if I’d ever go back.

I kept dreaming of a world I thought I’d never see. And then, one day… I got in.

The Grid changed all of that. Here are just a few reasons why I’m excited about what we’re doing:

Remote

We’re a distributed team comprised of people across 7 countries. I love that our culture supports working remotely where geography isn’t a barrier to working with great people. Everyone I’ve come into contact with has been incredibly talented and humble.

Style & Substance

Design is given the attention it deserves. In conjunction with the innovative technology required to make them a reality, beautiful aesthetics are at the forefront of everything we do.

Open Source

Just take a look at one or two of our organizations on GitHub and it’s easy to see that we believe in open source. I’m a big proponent for writing software in an open source environment that encourages collaboration and produces more modular, testable code with better documentation.

A Digital Frontier

Years of development have been invested into projects like these to facilitate building our platform, which launches soon.

I’m continually blown away by what we’re doing and I can’t wait for everyone else to experience it too.
