Speaker Profile

Julien Melissas is a web developer from Asheville, NC, with a passion for clean, efficient code, and re-doing things until they’re just right. Julien loves to learn about new technologies and development workflows, and spends most of his time working on front end, but does a little bit of everything!

Julien is a Co-Founder and Technical Director at Craftpeak, a creative agency in Asheville, where he works on UI/UX projects, as well as full website and web app builds.

Formally he was a freelancer and independent contractor for companies all over the US, where he built tons of custom WordPress themes and other solutions tailored to the client’s needs. He’s on the Roots.io development team, and works on open source whenever he can get a second away from work.

Julien loves JavaScript, information architecture, open source, web design, and Pit Bulls. When he is not in front of the screen working on building beautiful websites or that “next big thing”, you can find him making music, cooking or out in the yard with his dogs, Dina and Wilbur, growing hot peppers.
