Sam Feder

Freelance Software Engineer & Architect

I love working with newer technologies, but not afraid to rely on old favorites to get the job done. I have a passion for pixel-perfect frontend work, and a love for building self documenting and reliable APIs. I'll be with you from idea inception until launch day, work with you through the gritty details, and leverage a network of top talent to produce a top flight product.

I write quite a bit, and you can read what's on my mind on medium

and I'm also into photography, which you should check out at right here

Ever heard of Malcolm Gladwell’s 10,000 hours principal? If not, it states that 10,000 hours of practice is a requirement to master any skill. Bullshit.
