AMA: Wes Bos → Full Stack Developer, Teacher, Product Maker
Hey Folks! A big thanks to Max for inviting me here today!
I'm Wes Bos - I create things for the web and help others learn to do the same. I help make programming easy to understand and I'm making a living doing that.
I'm a full stack developer — I work with startups and established companies to build their websites and products.
My love for teaching crossed with my entrepreneurial side has birthed a couple of products. I'm the author of the Sublime Text Power User book + video series which will sell its 4,000th copy any day now. I just released React For Beginners two days ago and has already garnered 1,500 learners. These paid products are amazing because they allow me to create lots of free content such as Flexbox.io — What The FlexBox?! and Command Line Power User as well as dozens of YouTube videos and blog posts.
So — I'm do a bit of everything — Developing, Teaching, Speaking, Designing and lately figuring out how marketing works.
Let's chat! What questions do you have? I'm a fairly open guy, so go bananas
