Hello! I'm Alex Bonine, a Front-End Web Developer with over a decade of experience in software. I started on TI-86 calculators, went pro writing satellite communications at Rockwell Collins before leading the mobile team at Coyote Logistics. Now I lead the front-end at ToutApp, rewriting the entire stack to use React and a UI component library. I am based in San Francisco after years in the Midwest and East Coast and enjoy the wandering the city when the marine layer allows and the world when time allows.

UI Components Library and Table

Created UI components library to give our apps common design language, interactions, and styling documented in live coding environment. Developer tools were created to increase productivity.

UI components library begun with Gmail Chrome extension to prove out architecture before moving to OWA add-in and into the main web app. A new package now defines the grid used throughout the application. The grid is completely customizable and we are investigating the possibility of open-sourcing.

Alex loving work

My path to becoming a Web developer started in high school when my math league coach suggested I take a new C++ course being offered and has taken many twists and turns since.

I worked in labs on embedded systems for the military and developed a crowd-sourced public works Android application before ever touching HTML. Along the way, I earned a Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering and a Master's in Systems Engineering and spent plenty of time in coffee shops teaching myself new languages and frameworks.

That self-learning hasn't stopped. I channeled a love of music and curating playlists into a React website and now architect front-ends in using the framework.

Currently, I am a Senior Front-End Developer at ToutApp. In my spare time, you can find me at live music venues or wandering the beautiful city of San Francisco. Feel free to contact me with any questions or development opportunities.

This site was made using vanillaJS as it had been so long since I'd gone without a framework. You can find the code on Github. It is still a work in progress.
