Jack Franklin

Software Engineer, speaker, blogger and teacher.

Day to day you'll find me working at Thread as a frontend engineer focused on modernising our tech stack with React and Elm.

You'll also find me blogging on The JavaScript Playground where I write and record content on JavaScript, React, software development and more.

Workshops and teaching

I am a keen and experienced workshop teacher and have taught public and private workshops on a number of topics including:

  • JavaScript fundamentals
  • Advances in JavaScript: ES2015+, Promises, async/await and more.
  • React fundamentals: perfect for those with some JS experience wanting to dive into React.
  • Advanced React: for the React developer who would like to take their skills and application design to the next level.
  • Testing React: gain confidence in your applications by learning how to write comprehensive unit and acceptance tests.

If you would like to hire me to run a workshop at an event or for your company, please get in touch. References are available.

Conference speaking

I have a lot of experience speaking at industry conferences, meet-ups and events. I'm always keen to get involved and normally fit best into technical events with a focus on JavaScript or front end development generally.

If you'd like to have me speak at your event please do get in touch.
