Het Bijstere spoor

Picture of Evert

My name is Evert Pot, and you're looking at the 6th reincarnation of my web presence.

My GPG public key.

I'm a programmer. I'm mostly focused on building API's, HTTP-related applications and improving development processes.

I run a web development agency in Toronto called Bad Gateway.

In the past I worked at Yelp on REST APIs, co-founded fruux and a few other companies that have been acquired and no longer resemble what they once were. I'm very interested in web standards and served on several standards boards.

My full professional history is on my resume.
