Hi, I’m Ryan Artecona.
I work at Wistia as Tech Lead on the Infrastructure team.
I started programming on the front end in that same unholy trinity of HTML, CSS, and JS as everyone else. My work at Wistia has gradually shifted from working on applications themselves to working on tools and systems which support them. Happily, I write much less JS these days. You can read more about my background in my (outdated, for now) résumé.
I’ve learned to value simplicity over ease and semantics over aesthetics. I love using programming languages with strong type systems, and I’ve enjoyed Haskell the most among them so far. I reach for Nix when I have cause to package or install a program.
I live in Houston, TX with my wife, Philomena, our dog, Eleanor, and our cats, Jules and Michelle.
I’m happy to talk about anything you see here, so don’t hesitate to reach out!
