John Otander

Hello, I’m John Otander

You can usually find me on the internet as johno or 4lpine.

I’m a web developer and designer that builds things. Lots of things. I focus on improving design/developer tooling and making it more approachable to build websites and applications.

I’ve built a few popular open source projects including Blocks, MDX, Tachyons, and CSS Stats.

I’m part of the unified collective and I’m building Components AI in my spare time. I’m also creating a course, Compilers for Humans that seeks to show you that compilers aren’t magic.

I work at Gatsby helping to build a new presentation layer for the web.






✌️ I’m not currently looking for new opportunities.
