Wade Harkins

Speaker Bio:

Wade has been fascinated by computers since he first got his hands on one and started teaching himself to code in 4th grade. Starting with BASIC, he discovered HTML and VBScript (which existed at the time), later JavaScript, XML, and CSS, by taking apart web pages. From there, Wade began experimenting with every programming and markup language he could find a compiler or interpreter for, particularly those well suited for automation and multimedia.

Wade is now a software engineer who has over 8 years of professional web development experience. In his career, there aren’t many tech stacks Wade hasn’t touched, but he currently is showcasing his expertise in Angular, helping clients migrate from AngularJS to Angular and embrace Micro Frontend Architecture, and creating uniform applications by architecting robust design systems and web component libraries.

Wade enjoys video games, drawing, 3D modeling, and writing terrible music.
