I'm Tyler Barker. I live in Melbourne, where I'm building Prototape for musicians.

I wrote my first line of code in 2015, after wondering who was making all the audio recording software I'd become so fond of. After finishing my studies in computer science, and about 6 years working for various startups, I decided it was time to write music software of my own full-time. That's how Prototape was born.

But building a B2C SaaS company - especially alone - takes time. To keep the dream alive, meet new people, and continue broadening my expertise, I'm also taking on some freelance work.

I'm particularly skilled with Elixir, with multiple years experience using Phoenix LiveView. I also write loads of TypeScript, primarily using React, and always with TailwindCSS. Plus, if you're into programming languages, I'll wax lyrical about Rust all day.

So, if you'd like to work together on a small to medium project, please submit an issue for me to review - I'd love to hear from you.
