My name is Ian Mitchell
I’m a software developer based out of Seattle, Washington. I focus primarily on full-stack web development. You can find my Résumé here.
Current Project: Aquarius
Aquarius is a chatbot I am developing for Discord. This bot has taught me a lot - especially about accounting for all forms of user input. I've discovered just how evil my friends are - each time I release a new command they actively try to break it, forcing me to thoroughly think through edge cases and potential errors early on.
Not everything I’ve done has worked well or stuck around, but this chatbot has been a fantastic playground to try new things with. I frequently use it as a platform to learn about Node.js technologies, patterns, and packages I want to try out.
Aquarius is currently serving just over 2,100 users.
