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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

I've been building GitLens in my “spare”1 time for well over 2 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.

To my incredible backers — thank you so much for your contributions. I am truly humbled by your generosity and support.
