About Reid

Hello. My name is Reid Burke and I make tools to help people write great software. I work on websites made with open source tools, live video production, and motorcycles.

I am a Principal Software Engineer at Yahoo. My focus is on frontend development and developer tooling for Yahoo Mail which is a large React application relied on daily by millions around the world. Read my résumé.

I sometimes speak at conferences about technical topics. I’ve given talks at Node Summit San Francisco and JSFest Oakland.

This is my personal website and works published here are my own. They do not necessarily reflect the positions of my employer.

I serve at Awakening Church with a focus on their technology needs. I work on the hardware and software that enables their live internet video broadcasts.

I live in San Jose, California with my wife @jeeyunit and our daughter.
