Are you a Developer/Designer/Non-Technical Entrepreneur/Mentor/Support Services member?

JavaScript Developer

What is your background/skill sets? (Ex. JavaScript, Sales, Photoshop)

JavaScript (in a bunch of environment), HTML/CSS and a bunch of other areas: http://www.jacobfriesen.com/skills. I have spent over six years developing software, mostly informal experience though. In terms of professional experience, one year spread across three four month co-op terms. Currently, no for profit projects at the moment.

In a startup, what role best suits you?

Developer of some sort, I also know server admin and general website management (hosting, domain name management etc.).

Are you working on any projects or startups currently? If so, give us a quick rundown!

I am working on a new way to reduce the file size of JS files sent to a client that complements other established methods. For those who are more technical, it is an attempt at minifying JS by altering execution via static code analysis with Machine Learning algorithms to reduce source code side. It is intended to complement traditional minification. The Project is currently in a prototyping status: https://github.com/Jacob-Friesen/unsafe_minifier

What do you want out of North Forge Meetups?

I want to learn about Manitoba's startup community since I may be starting a tech startup in the near future (< 4 years).

Introduction
