I want to make things, I want to talk to people about making things. The smallest thing can be the most interesting, and occasionally the most important. I love a mystery and the feeling when it all comes together. Past instructor and tech support volunteer at FreeGeek. July 2016 graduate of Epicodus.

Joseph Karasek
I'm a junior full stack web developer with a passion for cutting edge javascript. I graduated from Epicodus this summer and am launching my career as a web developer. While my portfolio is limited, I've worked on a range of projects from simple static sites to modern web apps using micro-services built with Google's Polymer and custom built REST API's.

I teach and contribute to the curriculum at Epicodus, working with students from a wide range of backgrounds to become effective problem solvers and programmers. I helped put together the C#/.NET curriculum for the program, and I am also a Spring 2015 graduate. I love making tech accessible to those who may not have had the fortune to grow up surrounded by it, and seeing tech grow into an increasingly diverse field.
