Jed Schmidt

Jed Schmidt is a JavaScript Developer at Uniqlo in NY. Before that Jed lived in Tokyo and worked as a Japanese Translator. We talk about the huge shift in jobs, and how it feels to be working in a field that was once his hobby!

Jed also was a founder of BrooklynJS. He tells us what sparked the inspiration for the meetup, what it means for the NY community and why he's decided to step down. We have a bunch of debates about minimalist coding, staying up to date on trends in Programming and people degrading each other's coding style. Jed also shares a link to him singing A Capella on Good Morning America.
