About GitLens Fitbit Blog Resume

Eric Amodio

I'm Eric Amodio — an entrepreneur, innovator, leader, architect, and full-stack developer. My passion lies with dreaming up new ideas and bringing them to life through code. I thrive on challenges and solving complex problems, while also ensuring that the challenges accepted and solutions devised are always made with an eye on the bigger picture — the user experience. I pride myself with the ability of being able to see the forest for the trees, as well as being able to dive deeply into the details. I take great care in the experience, architecture, and code of the products that I build.

My favorite editor is Visual Studio Code and my favorite technologies currently are TypeScript, Node.js, and .NET Core.

I am also an open-source enthusiast and maintainer. I ❤ open-source — both building and contributing. I love the collaboration and the sharing of knowledge driven by the open-source movement. It is a wonderful and exciting time to be a developer.

If you find GitLens or any of my other open-source work useful, please sponsor me. And if you use GitLens for work, please encourage your employer to sponsor me as well. Your sponsorship will help make my continued development of GitLens more sustainable and will benefit millions of VS Code users. Thank you for your sponsorship! 🙏

When I'm not coding 1 or keeping up with the latest technologies, you will find me spending time with my wife and two kids. I also love traveling, hiking, camping, and diving.

You can also find me on Twitter and GitHub.

My open-source work is primarily focused on GitLens, a powerful Git extension for VS Code, created, developed, and maintained by me, and is loved and relied upon by millions. From its humble beginnings, GitLens has grown wildly beyond my expectations — in both its reach, as well as its demands on my limited “free” time and attention.

Today, GitLens has over 8 million installs and ~60M downloads 😱! It is loved and relied upon by users on teams of all sizes, ranging from single developers to large enterprise teams. Developing, maintaining, and supporting GitLens takes a significant amount of my “free” time and energy, far too much if you ask my wife and kids.

So, if you find GitLens or any of my other open-source work useful, please sponsor me. And if you use GitLens for work, please encourage your employer to sponsor me as well. Your sponsorship will help make my continued development of GitLens more sustainable and will benefit millions of VS Code users. Thank you for your sponsorship! 🙏

P.S. I also author and maintain many other VS Code extensions and have ideas for many more, run a community for VS Code extension authors, and contribute to many open-source projects.

Also, please star GitLens on GitHub, write a review, follow me on Twitter and GitHub, or consider hiring me.
