Alex Booker

Content marketer who codes based in Shoreditch, East London.

Iā€™m a full stack JavaScript developer that now works on marketing. Yes, that's right. I turned to the "dark side" šŸ˜ˆ.

I work remotely at Ably, where we're building a rock-solid WebSocket infrastructure API. As a Technical Content Creator, I am responsible for teaching developers how to maximize the use of Ably and for sharing stories about our customers' successes

Before Ably, I worked at Scrimba, building the future of online coding education. I still host The Scrimba Podcast, a top-rated show where I interview developers about their advice on breaking into tech.
