My name is Salem.

I care about web performance, front-end infrastructure, and public transportation. I am a software engineer on Etsy's Web Platform team. I put my good ideas on GitHub and my bad ideas on Twitter.
I gave a talk on migrating Etsy to Webpack at JSConf 2019 and there's a video of it. There are some slides as well, if that's your thing. I shortened the talk and gave it again at QueensJS, which was a lot of fun.
I wrote a small development proxy once because I was at an airport that only allowed 60 minutes of free WiFi, and I wanted to work on some code that sent network requests. I put it on Github and named it Laurence.
I've made small contributions to a number of projects, including Prettier and Webpack.
Sometimes I make music.
