A picture of me.

Hey, I'm Tyrel Chambers! I'm a passionate developer who cannot help but pursue fun ideas. Really. Sometimes, I just want a break!

When I'm not developing, you can usually find me watching live streams on extreme weather, taking photographs, or spending time outdoors!

I enjoy working in the front-end or things, but I'm also not afraid of doing things on the back-end. I work in Javascript primarily.

    I went from 277lbs to 227lbs in 1.5 years. Now things have changed. This is my running journey.

Articles I wrote for This Dot

I wrote some articles for This Dot after certain community outreach events. I'd consider them event wrap-ups moreso than technical, but check them out if you'd like!
