My name is Itai Steinherz, and I'm a software developer from Israel, as well as a high-school and university student. I've been developing software for nearly 7 years, ranging from CLIs and desktop apps to full-stack mobile and backend apps. In my spare time, I like to hang out with my friends and play the piano.
I've been contributing to and maintaining OSS projects for the last 4 years, and love collaborating with cool and smart people from all around the world.
One of the more popular projects I maintain (along with the awesome Sindre Sorhus and Sam Verschueren) is
np, which is a CLI for Node.js developers that simplifies your entire publishing workflow to a single command, and includes many best practices and useful features built-in. I usually triage issues, review PRs and contribute to different parts of the codebase, while continuously working with others and maintaing a high level of code quality and architecture standards.
I also made other cool projects such as
videos and MChat.
I recently participated in a Chingu voyage, which is coding cohort that connects developers from all around the world and enables them to collaborate and work on products together. At my voyage, I lead a team of 5 developers from the US, Greece, Italy, and Israel. Together, we developed Knowledge, an online platform for asking questions and getting answers. During the voyage I learned a lot about leading a team of developers, working around deadlines, quickly iterating over ideas, and collaborating with people coming from different backgrounds and places.
I always seek complex architecture challenges, and love utilizing modern approaches such as Serverless applications, Infrastructure as Code and CI/CD in my work.
Apart from high-level programming, I also have experience with low-level programming using C and Assembly, and like to fiddle with information security and play CTFs.
I currently work at Flytrex as a software developer, as part of the backend team (mainly using Python, Docker, AWS, and a variety of other technologies and services).
