Chris Ferdinandi

Hi, I’m Chris Ferdinandi.

I help people learn vanilla JavaScript. I believe there’s a simpler, more resilient way to make things for the web.

I’m the author of the Vanilla JS Pocket Guide series, creator of the Vanilla JS Academy training program, and host of the Vanilla JS Podcast. My developer tips newsletter is read by over 4,900 developers each weekday.

I’ve taught developers at organizations like Chobani and the Boston Globe, and my JavaScript plugins have been used by organizations like Apple and Harvard Business School.

I love pirates, puppies, and Pixar movies, and live near horse farms in rural Massachusetts. I run Go Make Things with Bailey Puppy, a lab-mix from Tennessee.
