Chris Bell is an Engineering Leader based in Brooklyn, NY and currently working as a CTO for hire.
I'm a full-stack engineer mostly using Elixir, NodeJS, React, and React Native to bring new products and services to life. More about me.
EMPEX Conference: For the past 5 years I've been a co-organizer at the EMPEX conference in NYC where we host a one of a kind conference for the Elixir programming language in a Jazz club in SoHo.
ElixirTalk Podcast: I'm a co-host (alongside Desmond Bowe) on the popular ElixirTalk podcast, where we discuss application design and the state of the ecosystem. We've had some pretty incredible guests on over the years.
Speaking: I've given a few talks over the years, mostly about Elixir (unsuprisingly). My favorites are Selling Food with Elixir at Elixir Conf, 2016 and Shipping a Replacement Architecture in Elixir from EMPEX LA, 2018.
Front-end London: Way back in 2013 I co-founded a front-end meetup while at Made by Many in London, inventively named Front-end London. We even spun it out into a one day, single track conference called EpicFEL.
I'm available across this world-wide-web, like most people, on a few platforms.
