My name is Nickolas Kenyeres. I am also known as @knicklabs on the web. I am a web and mobile application developer specializing in building rich user interfaces with React and React Native. I also build full-stack web applications with Phoenix, Laravel, and Ruby on Rails.
I am a technologist that believes in community and mentorship. I co-founded Software Niagara — a grassroots group that organizes educational and networking events to promote technology and connect the local software community.
Open source technology is very important to me. I rely on it to earn my living. The software solutions I create are invariably based on open source solutions. I contribute to open source projects when I can. I also enjoy speaking about these things.
Through my consultancy, Knick Labs, I create bespoke web-based and mobile software solutions for applications in industry and applied research.
Outside of my work and community involvement, I am an avid runner and cyclist. I can regularly be found at my local run club or out on the road cycling. I enjoy running races. My most recent accomplishment was completing the 2016 Las Vegas Rock and Roll Half Marathon.
I live just outside Toronto, in the Niagara Region, with my partner and our two dogs.
