Kent coding on a couch

Curious to see all the people who helped out making this website?

Start scrolling to learn more about everyone involved.

Producing this site was a team effort

kentcdodds.com is more than just my developer portfolio. It's a place for me to share my thoughts, ideas, and experiences as well as the thoughts, ideas, and experiences of others (yourself included). It's a full fleged–open source–web application.

egghead.io and I have collaborated to make this website a truly high-quality and delightful learning experience for you and others.

It would be impossible to list everyone who has contributed to the creation of this website (I'd have to list my parents, teachers, etc, etc, etc).

But hopefully with this page, you can get an idea of the primary group of folks who worked to make this site great.

Everyone that helped out.

In no particular order.

Shout-outs

Some other awesome folks

Ryan Florence and other friends at Remix.run were super helpful as I was figuring out the best way to rewrite my website in this new technology with completely new and improved features that far exceeded what my website had been previously.

The syntax highlighting theme in blog posts is inspired by Sarah Drasner's Night Owl.

To prepare for the launch of this website, a number of terrific folks reviewed and opened issues and even made pull requests to get it ready for launch. Thank you!

The folks at Fly.io were an enormous help in getting me off the ground with hosting the site and databases. The backend is totally not my domain and they seriously helped me be successful.
