Eric Amodio

Hi.

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.

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.

Also please consider following me on Twitter and GitHub, or hiring me.

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

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.

Sponsoring Me

Hi.

I'm 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.

At the same time, open-source comes with a cost, of which gets paid by trading time and energy from other areas — for me it's usually sleep 💤, but sometimes also family. Of course, by sponsoring me and my work, you can't create time, but you can certainly help increase the reward aspect of trading this precious time and help ensure that it continues.

I spend a lot of my “free” time building and maintaining GitLens for VS Code and have for well over 3 years now. From its very humble beginnings, GitLens has grown wildly beyond my expectations — in both its reach as well as its demands on my time and attention. GitLens now has over 4 million installs (~34M downloads 😱) and is used by teams of all sizes, from single devs to enterprise teams. I also author and maintain many other VS Code extensions (and have ideas for many more) as well as contribute to many open-source projects.

💖 Thank you for your future sponsorship! And to my incredible sponsors — thank you so much for your contributions. I am truly humbled by your generosity and support.

Also please consider following me on Twitter and GitHub, or hiring me.

GitLens supercharges the Git capabilities built into Visual Studio Code. It helps you to visualize code authorship at a glance via Git blame annotations and code lens, seamlessly navigate and explore Git repositories, gain valuable insights via powerful comparison commands, and so much more.

GitLens is an open-source extension for Visual Studio Code that I created.

GitLens simply helps you better understand code. Quickly glimpse into whom, why, and when a line or code block was changed. Jump back through history to gain further insights as to how and why the code evolved. Effortlessly explore the history and evolution of a codebase.

While GitLens is generously offered to everyone free of charge, if you find it useful, please consider supporting it. Also please consider starring it, writing a review, following me on Twitter and GitHub, or hiring me.

Read the reviews to see what people are saying about GitLens. I am truly humbled by the love and support of the Visual Studio Code community.
