About George

George Mandis is an independent full stack developer, Google Developer Expert, creative technologist and speaker. He has been building things on the web for over 13 years and runs his own micro-agency at SnapTortoise based out of Portland, Oregon. George has spoken and run workshops at 20+ conferences all over the globe, from Microsoft Build to neighborhood meetups, from Nepal to New York.

His other educational and outreach efforts include running an introductory web development bootcamp through a local community college in Portland since 2015 intended to serve traditionally under-represented people in the tech industry, one-on-one mentoring and teaching creative programming and electronics classes to children.

He is a seasoned travel enthusiast who's run marathons in North Korea and feels moderately proud of his functionally awful Serbo-Croatian.

Interested and open to remote and international work opportunities, preferrably contract but always open to discussion.
