Eric Amodio

I'm Eric Amodio — an entrepreneur, innovator, leader, architect, and full-stack developer. I am currently the CTO at GitKraken. 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.

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, Mastodon, and GitHub.

GitLens supercharges Git inside VS Code and unlocks untapped knowledge within each repository. It helps you to visualize code authorship at a glance via Git blame annotations and CodeLens, seamlessly navigate and explore Git repositories, gain valuable insights via rich visualizations and powerful comparison commands, and so much more.

GitLens is a powerful, open-source, Git extension for Visual Studio Code that is loved and relied upon by millions. It was created, developed, and maintained by me, until October 2021 when we were acquired by GitKraken. 🎉

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.
