Hi, I'm Will Kempster.

I'm a JavaScript Developer and Maker in London. 🙀

My day job with Talent Point is helping some of London's most interesting tech-first business quickly and sustainably scale their engineering teams. Here I have Co-founded and MC a meetup series called Growable and created a mixture of internal SPAs and public facing JAMStack sites using React.js.

This site exists to share some of my thoughts and experiences learning JavaScript and making products. My end goal is to launch a successful online business and in the background I'm building a SaaS product with a friend to launch in 2020.
