Karol Brennan Headshot

Hi! My name is Karol Brennan

I'm a web developer from Milwaukee, Wisconsin

I'm the creator of the #1 bingo calling application on Google: letsplaybingo.io.

I'm currently building highly customized sites in Salesforce Experience Cloud at Slalom.

Recent things I've worked on.

After spending the last several years working within consulting the vast majority of what I have built is proprietary. If you have any questions about the types of projects I've been involved in please ask!

Throughout my career I have have the opportunity to work on projects of all sizes for companies ranging from big tech and fortune 500s, to small businesses and non profits. I enjoy the unique challenges that each project brings.

I do maintain some open source work on my GitHub if you'd like to check out some of my code.

A little more about me.

Throughout my career I've worked as a Salesforce developer, front-end / ReactJS developer, full stack PHP developer, and web designer. I found my passion in bringing designs to pixel perfect fruition on the front-end through HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

I am a minimalistic developer, prefering to use vanilla JavaScript and plain CSS when possible. I only reach for a framework when there is something to gain from them. Usually for more complex component driven projects. My current framework of choice is ReactJS, which I have been using for my side project letsplaybingo.io since 2018. I often employ Sass for CSS pre-processing and like to use my own simple grid system in my personal work instead of something like Foundation or Bootstrap. I enjoy component driven development, object oriented programming concepts, and new challenges that require abstraction and data manipulation.

Outside of my career - I am happily married and I am the proud mama of 2 awesome kids and 2 goofy doggos. I believe in equality, kindness, and helping others. I care about sustainability, animal rights, and human welfare. In my spare time I enjoy gaming and gardening. I run on plants, water, and sarcasm.
