Hey, I'm Wes Bos.
I'm a web developer, teacher and speaker from Hamilton, Ontario 🇨🇦. I'm 35 years old and I've been making websites for about 23 years - or exactly 747555813657 milliseconds!
I've been in love with web development for over half my life. Seems weird, right? It's a space of constant improvement and new & exciting technology. I consider myself a hacker in that I'm always using technology to solve my life's problems and ambitions.
📻 Listen to my origin story if you want a little more info.
I love to teach. I got my start teaching with Ladies Learning Code and went on to teach part time and full time bootcamps at HackerYou (Now Juno College). I now spend my time making courses, doing workshops and speaking at conferences around the world.
I live in a really cool city called Hamilton with my wife Kaitlin, two girls, one boy and a pup named Snickers. We spend our summers at our cottage up in beautiful Northern Ontario.
I have a few hobbies. I've rebuilt hundreds of vintage road racing bikes. I fancy myself as a good cook, enjoyer of cast iron, smoking meat on my Big Green Egg and have been known to make some pretty killer pulled pork. I love tools and I'll try fix anything - appliances, electronics, kids toys and things around the house.
You can stop reading here. This is just a succinct bio that podcast hosts and conference organizers can use to introduce me when they have me on. Otherwise they find a super old one!
