Zane StaggsWeb/Mobile Software Engineer

Advanced Engineering Professional

with 15+ years of software development experience


Although my passion is the front-end user interface, I also work in server side (backend) code whenever possible. 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 able to code anything from scratch as well. 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 for the business.

Advanced Proficiencies: Javascript, NodeJS, Vue, React, Backbone, PHP, Python, Java/Kotlin, Ruby/Rails, Bash, C, iOS/Android, Javascript/Typescript, VueJS, Photoshop, Illustrator, Figma, CSS, Mysql, Postgres, MongoDB

Bleeding Edge: Currently I am focusing on generative AI, game programming, vr and animation, JAMstack, and static site generators such as Hugo, Gatsby and NextJS.

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 interested in at Github.

Personal Interests

When 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 Northern California when the conditions are good.

We live in San Francisco but we travel a lot. We have travelled to Paris, Amsterdam, Mexico, 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 cryptocurrency, virtual/augmented reality, gaming, security and networking. If only there was enough time in the day...
