Elliott McNary

Front End Developer

Elliott’s middle name is “Enthusiasm”.

Probably.

That or “Sick Beats”. But it’s more likely “Enthusiasm” because there aren’t many parents who would name their child “Sick”, right?

Anyway.

Elliott’s not the first beloved JavaScripting yeti whose education was in Finance instead of software. After completing his degree, he spent time traveling the world, ending up in Melbourne for a time, where he worked in technical sales and felt his self-described “closet nerd” looking over the fence at software. He found the welcoming community of FreeCodeCamp and dove in to learning.

Fast forward in time and a few hops around the world, Elliott landed in New York City to attend, and later help teach incoming students at Fullstack Academy. He’s grown tremendously as a JavaScript developer, mastering building interfaces with react and redux. He’s undaunted by technical complexity, dabbling in realtime and peer to peer apps with webrtc and xmpp.

We’ve all grown to quickly love the attitude and energy Elliott has brought to &yet. Aside from his natural enthusiasm and infectious positivity, what we love about Elliott is his passion as a student and a teacher. It gets his blood pumping to help people learn by making technical concepts (like pulse code modulation) accessible and understandable. He is a conscientious and supportive teammate, too.

Through his passion for music and JavaScript, Elliott’s created a number of different projects, including That’s Hot, a site that daily surfaces the top 15 songs on Soundcloud from users with fewer than 15K followers.

Elliott immerses himself in music as often as possible. So if you see him without headphones in hand or around his neck, you should probably run for the nearest defibrillator.

&yet is about people.
