I've been in the tech industry for 20 years. During that time I've done everything from build and manage server environments, to architect and install networks, to development just to name a few. For the last 6 years, I've had my full focus on full stack web development. I specialize in modern PHP & Laravel in the backend, and have experience with Angular, React and Vue in the front end with a love for and specialization in Vue. I work as a development lead at an agency specializing in web and mobile app development called Black Airplane. As a lead engineer, I get the opportunity to support the full development lifecycle starting with discovery, planning & estimation, all the way through tech selection, architecture, build and deployment. When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and 5 kids, playing guitar or tinkering with tech I'm interested in that I don't get to use in my day job.
The Augmented Engineer: Using AI Tools to Improve Development Efficiency
"AI will not take your job. A person using AI will take your job." —Mo Gawdat, Chief Business Officer, Google[X] The AI genie is out of the bottle, and there are few certainties about what the future holds. One certainty that I believe we can derive though, is that identifying healthy methodologies for embracing AI technologies is a good practice. In this talk, I will share my thoughts and practices related to how I use AI tools in my everyday development workflow, and explore thoughts on emerging AI tech and how I plan to evaluate and incorporate it when it's viable.
