Craig Burton
Senior JavaScript Engineer


Craig Burton

I am a Senior JavaScript Engineer specializing in creating rich, testable and maintainable web applications.

I began coding nearly two decades ago as a hobby, and have since decided to pursue a career in developing software. My first programs, which I wrote when I was 12, were QBASIC song sequencers. I was on an old 286 my dad gave me running MS-DOS, and I had no idea MIDI was a thing, so those tiny programs looped those songs over my machine's internal speaker. Later, I got into more 'serious' endeavors: writing video game mods. Other guys my age were into sports; I was into code.

Currently, I'm working in Angular and Node at PlatformQ, a leader in producing live online events in healthcare and education.
