I've been teaching for as long as I can remember. I talk about this a lot in "Why and How I started public speaking", but just know that I have a love of teaching, I've done it a lot, and I want to do more. This is why I'm excited to announce that I've gone full-time educator!

What does this mean? Well, it means that I'll be able to spend my daytime completely focused on making content that will help you level up your skills as a developer. And it means that I can spend my nighttime with my wife and kids (not that I wasn't, but when I've worked on big things like TestingJavaScript.com my wife didn't see much of me in the evenings).

So what am I working on? Here are a few things I'm planning:

  1. Remote workshops. Lots of remote workshops. Stay tuned for more info on how to sign up for those :)
  2. More sites like TestingJavaScript.com. Stuff for React, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and more more more!
  3. Quality improvements to DevTips with Kent livestreams!
  4. Some time to write and publish my fantasy novels: Shurlan βšͺ
  5. More egghead.io and Frontend Masters courses!
  6. Improved curation of the mountain of content I've put together over the years, making it easier for you to pull value out of the stuff I'm creating.
  7. Quality improvements to this newsletter, my website, and blog. Also making it easier to get value from that stuff.
  8. There's more... But I'm going to surprise you 😜


I had amazing experiences and co-workers at PayPal. I built some things that I'm really proud of while there. If you're looking for a place to work, I highly recommend you give PayPal a close look.

I can't wait to show you what I have in store for you. Just to get things going, I made this egghead.io lesson today! Give it a watch πŸ’―

Good luck, and stay tuned!
