Picture of Ben

Benjamin Sweedler


I’m a software engineer from the Silicon Prairie.

I was born in Palo Alto, but grew up in Urbana — home to the University of Illinois and a thriving tech community.

Frontend Web Development

I build web applications, and I get great joy out of seeing other people use what I’ve helped build.


I like bringing together people and technologies. DevOps is cultural just as much as technical.

Software Development Processes

Flowcharts, diagrams, and processes, oh my. There’s a good chance I’ll become a project manager someday.

Design Systems

Combining frontend work with corporate communication — both topics I’m interested in.

I love learning and sharing what I know.
