Zane StaggsWeb/Mobile Software Engineer

I am highly passionate about Web Development and Software Development. There is nothing I enjoy more than being approached with a business problem or feature request and transforming that idea into reusable code and a friendly interface.

I save my web development links on Twitter follow me at @zanedev if you would like to keep on top of the latest front end and full stack topics that I am interested in. I also star projects that I am am interested in on Github.


Although my passion is in front-end coding and user interfaces, I also work in server side (backend) coding when I need to. The following is an abbreviated list of the technologies I am currently using or have used in the past. I do prefer open source software but I will work with proprietary technologies if required. Note that this is not a complete list but hopefully gives an idea of my programming background in general.

I enjoy using frameworks and reusing code wherever possible but am also able to code anything from scratch and I am very fast at learning any new technology. My uncanny debugging skills come in handy in any coding language regardless of technology. I also do not believe in only using one technology, I use whatever is the best tool for the job and will result in the most efficient turnaround.

Advanced Proficiencies: NodeJS, ReactJS, Backbone, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby/Rails, Bash, C, iOS/Android, Javascript(ES6), Jquery, Photoshop, Illustrator, HTML5, CSS3, Mysql, MongoDB

Advanced CMS Dev Experience: Concrete5, Wordpress, Drupal, NetlifyCMS

Bleeding Edge: Currently I am focusing on webgl, game programming, vr and animation, JAMstack, and static site generators such as hugo and gatsby.

Personal Interests

When I'm not working on code I enjoy hanging out with my beautiful wife and two very awesome daughters and snowboarding/skiing in Tahoe, playing video games, reading books and surfing norcal.

We live in San Francisco but like to travel whenever possible. We have travelled to Paris, Amsterdam, Luxembourg, Switzerland, London, Australia, Mexico, Bahamas, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, Alaska, and Hawaii to name a few.

Technology-wise I am interested in all things web/mobile and multimedia. I strive to become completely fluid in graphic design one day. I am also very interested in virtual reality, gaming, computer security and networking. If only there was enough time in the day...
