Hi—I’m Sam Stephenson, @sstephenson on Twitter. I’ve been building web software for 37signals since 2006.

I’m a full-stack developer but I specialize in sweating the details to help bring great user interfaces to life. My most recent work includes the calendar and page-stacking behavior in the all-new Basecamp.

I’m the creator of the following open-source software:

See my GitHub profile for the full list.

I’ve also contributed to many other open-source projects, including Ruby on Rails, Node.js, CoffeeScript, Backbone.js, and Zepto.

I occasionally publish personal essays on this site:

In October 2011 I spoke at the Future of Web Apps conference in London on why CoffeeScript is beautiful and I hope never to have to write plain JavaScript again.

In July 2011 I was a guest on The Changelog podcast.

From time to time I write about web development on 37signals’ Signal vs. Noise blog. Here are a few articles you might enjoy:
