Seth Silesky


Don't make the mistake of challenging Seth to friendly game of chess—he played competitively not long ago. These days, he's putting that strategic thinking and winning mindset to good use on the Austin team as a bonafide JavaScript aficionado. He's toyed with Elixir and Elm, likes Node.js for building Rest APIs, and has built apps in React and React Native. If you can't tell, Seth's a fan of functional programming.

Aside from his many left-brained activities, Seth enjoys commuting to work by bicycle and spending time with his wife, Melissa.

Fun Fact

Seth quit grad school to become a programmer. If he weren't programming, he'd currently be writing a PhD dissertation on René Girard.
