Hi, I'm Jess Telford, I created developerstory.dev 👋
When I heard StackOverflow will be discontinuing their Developer Story feature, I couldn't just let my story get deleted! Being a developer myself, I put together a script to download it as JSON, and dutifully copied it to a USB drive for safe keeping.
But, what good is my story sitting on a USB drive?
So, I brewed a strong cuppa and got to work: I needed something that reflected the StackOverflow Timeline style, but with a modern take, and built for the mobile web. Something I would be proud to show my friends, family, and potential employers. Something that really told my unique story.
After 6 (very loooong) days, DeveloperStory.dev was born! I uploaded the JSON file, published it to the web, and finally have a permanent home for my story that wont get deleted at the whim of a big corporate. I'm pretty proud of how it turned out, wanna see? Jess Telford's Developer Story.
