About Me — Ben Nadel

I am the co-founder and a principal engineer at InVision App, Inc, a company that is at the forefront of the design and user-experience (UX) revolution. There, I spend my days making sure that our servers are running smoothly, our database queries are executing quickly, and our users are receiving the experience that they deserve. I like to say that my team's mission statement is to advocate for the users, not for the business.

I'm based out of New York and I love living in the North East United States. If you're ever in New York, please drop me a line — I'd love to get together, talk about web development, and take a photo for the blog.

About This Blog

This blog — sometimes known as "The Kinky Solutions" blog — is my platform for experimentation and community interaction. With each post, I try to delve deeper into the ever-expanding universe of web development. I understand that growing my skills as a developer not only takes time and an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, it also takes the support of others. That's why my blog tries to be just as much Question as it is Answer. I find that the feedback provided by my readers is just as helpful, if not more so, than the content itself. As such, I do my best to promote high-quality conversations from which everyone in the community can learn.

I strongly believe that inspiration is for amateurs. So every day, I wake up, go to my desk, and actively "practice" web development from about 5:30 AM to 8:30 AM. This really gets my creative juices flowing and primes me for the day of work.

I try to publish several blog entries every week on some aspect of web application development including (but not limited to) the topics of ColdFusion / Lucee, JavaScript, Node.js, HTML, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), and SQL. If you want to be part of the conversation, check back often or subscribe to my RSS feed.

On My Father, Bruce Nadel

For all that I have accomplished, I know that none of it would have been possible if it wasn't for the endless love and support of my father, who was taken from us too early. Read more »
