I'm Dean Verleger, a full stack developer who loves to open source. I leverage cloud services to build apps and collaboration tools. I'm currently building .NET & React apps and maintaining large TypeScript, SharePoint Framework, codebases with rush (@ EnVista). I love to learn, and I strive to maintain a good work/life balance.
About the site
I named this site, Spirited Refactor, in tribute of the inspired feeling one gets when they're well-rested and improving code with a sweeping code change. Functionally, this site is part blog and part wiki. The source code is freely available on github.
