Wyatt Preul

Node.js Architect at nearForm

Summary

I have leadership experience as well as a strong technical background, which make me an ideal candidate for a developer leadership role.

I regularly contribute to open source software, namely software in the Node.js ecosystem. I helped to create hapi and the surrounding ecosystem at my time at WalmartLabs.  I am an active maintainer of Seneca, lab, and other hapi related modules. I have a passion for containers, microservices, application security, and testing.
