About Skilled.dev

My name is Trey Huffine (@treyhuffine), and I'll be your teacher. My passion is to help people begin and level up their careers as software engineers. I have been a professional developer since 2015 and have seen all aspects of what's needed to ace your coding interviews, stand out in the hiring process, and increase your salary.

Whether you are looking for your first job or trying to move up to your dream role, I will teach you how to win the coding interview.

My mini-CV and experience/knowledge I'll be sharing with you:

  • Now: Teaching coding interviews on Skilled.dev and building free career growth tools at gitconnected.com. I'm also an active startup founder.
  • 2016-2019: Software engineer at Postmates (a large startup in Silicon Valley, acquired by Uber). I interviewed hundreds of candidates, worked hand-in-hand with hiring managers and the recruiting team, and contributed extensively to improving the hiring process.
  • 2016 job search: Interviewed with numerous startups and tech giants (including Google and Facebook). I knew this step would lay the foundation for the rest of my career growth, and I committed myself to fully understanding how to land interviews and master the techniques to successfully answer the programming questions they asked.
  • 2015-2016: I worked at GrubMarket an early-stage but rapidly growing startup in San Francisco. During my time there, the company received a Series A and B funding rounds, and I worked my way up to lead engineer and manager, and I built out the entire hiring/interview process. GrubMarket is now a unicorn ($1B+ valuation) and on the path to an IPO.
  • 2015 job search: Fresh out of a bootcamp, I went through the grind of finding that first job as a software engineer.
  • 2014-2015: I began teaching myself web development and found my passion. I knew that's what I wanted to do for my job and eventually went to a coding bootcamp to propel me into a career as a software engineer.
  • Earlier: I studied nuclear engineering in college where I first learned basic programming when I was 20 years old but had no idea the direction I wanted to go. I received a masters in quantitative finance before I found my passion for writing software and building startups.

I have put thousands of hours into research, writing content, and building the platform. I am incredibly excited to teach you everything that I know.

I have also built a bunch of tools on gitconnected.com to help you grow your career as a developer that will be free forever: resume builder, portfolio API, and coding tutorials ranked by developers.
