Hi, I'm Sam! 👋

It's really nice to meet you.

Learning to code is hard, getting a job in tech is hard, and growing your career is hard. I'm here to help you as best I can, not by giving you vague motivational speeches that ignore big issues, but by sharing microskills I've learned that can compound and become transformative. For example:

Take what's helpful for you, discard the rest. If you like these, sign up for the Developer Microskills newsletter at the bottom of the page.

During the day, I manage the Developer Relations team at Auth0. I'm also an instructor for Thinkster and egghead. I live in the PNW with my wife and our scruffy doggo and love spending time in the woods whenever I can.

If you'd like to talk closer to real time, you can find me on Twitter and Twitch.
