I’m Yitzchak Schaffer, a web developer based in Northern New Jersey. For five years, I have been designing and building data-intensive web applications, founded on open-source technologies and the full Linux web stack. I am passionate about clean code, thorough testing, and solid user experience.
I started out in higher education because of the tremendous potential to help people gain knowledge and set a solid foundation in life, and I have brought that vision with me in my transition beyond academe. I am always looking for new opportunities to use my skills to enrich lives and experiences. Contact me today, and we will discover whether we can turn your idea into a reality together.
