About Me

Who is Taylor Edmiston and what does he do anyway?



I'm a software engineer experienced in full stack development (with a focus on backend), distributed systems, and very experienced in Python. I also enjoy architecture and system design, refactoring, code quality, and automation. I offer software development services via my company with expertise in creating web apps, APIs, etc.



I value open-source software and the opportunities it creates to learn and build products faster. My professional code is predominantly private, though I am exploring opportunities to be able to share more of it. From time to time I share my code for small projects and utilities I've created.


Besides my main blog, I occasionally contribute to some collective blogs as well.


The past several years in startups have been a whirlwind — here are a few accomplishments from my experiences so far.

Wrote code for startups in top accelerators

I've done software development for startups graduating from 3 top accelerator programs: AngelPad, Techstars, and The Brandery.

Per the Seed Accelerator Rankings Project, these are some of the best accelerators in the world. As a startup, getting into any one is a highly competitive process. Working for several that went through different top accelerators is a unique experience because each accelerator has a different style and focus which become embedded in the company's DNA.
