Jason Pollentier recently joined our team at Revelry as a Software Engineer. We found Jason – and he found us – as a result of an active conference and meetup climate here in New Orleans. We’re pretty proud to be a part of this community, because it helps us attract great people like Jason.
I’ve already seen him dig into projects and provide great insight in the few weeks he’s been with us. Jason is a recovering entrepreneur: previously, he cofounded League Lab and I’m excited to see him use this experience to help our clients who are starting their own businesses.
Jason has been making web apps since 2004, including public facing websites , e-commerce, and complex administrative tools. He is a proud survivor of such horrors as Flash and IE6, in addition to spending many years of using PHP on a daily basis. This inspired him to seek out other languages for hobby programming. I asked him about his programming preferences and favorite work tools.
When he comes out from behind the keyboard, Jason can be found biking around New Orleans or hanging out at the rock climbing gym. But he tells us that it’s being a “maker” that really thrills him.
Speaking of making things, Jason also tells us that he loves the interconnectivity that Arduino offers:
Hey Jason, welcome to the team!
