Myad Tahajody

I wanted to do a lot of things when I was a kid, but developing software was not one of them. I used to be a nerdy kid devouring technology (kind of still am), so all the signs of my future career were there, I just didn't know any better. No nerd is complete without obsessing about gaming, I've always been the console guy ever since I got my Super Nintendo back in the days.

In a semester abroad at University of Melbourne I happened to find my interest in programming. The JS ecosystem - evolving at a rapid pace - is very exciting to be a part of. My professional experience has also brought me beyond languages and tools into more abstract territory such as architecting small-/medium sized apps, leadership, and mentoring.

My family and friends are what keeps me going, a loving wife and energetic daughter, and childhood friends dating back to the Lunarstorm era! My other passion in life is Martial Arts. It all started with Taekwondo but turned into Muay Thai and a bit of grappling. The past decade I've been obsessively binging MMA events, mostly from the UFC.
