Ben Makuh

Hello, friend.

My name is Ben Makuh. I'm an introspective pastor-turned-software engineer. I develop full-stack web applications with an eye toward performance, usability, and delight. In short, I believe technology is for people, not the other way around, and so it should be built to serve. Over the past couple years, I have been focusing on building realtime collaborative tools for editing textual and visual documents together with others. I am always learning new things, but currently I have been writing TypeScript on the back and the front with tools like Node.JS/Express/Apollo and React/Jest. In terms of databases, I'm a Postgres guy, and on the side I'm currently learning the Rust programming language. I am a co-maintainer of the True Myth library for typesafe data manipulation in TypeScript and a contributor to the Grain programming language.

As you can tell by this website, I am more than my technological work. I also enjoy reviewing books for various publishers as well as writing about life, theology, and other kinds of reflections.

If you'd like to contact me, you can email me, check out my GitHub, or connect with me on LinkedIn.
