Paul Straw

Software Developer

Hi, I’m Paul Straw. I create web-based applications with neat tools like Ruby on Rails, JavaScript (both vanilla and using tools like CoffeeScript, Underscore, Vue, and jQuery), Grunt, Git, and of course a healthy dash of HTML and CSS (SASS, please). I’m currently Lead Developer / Partner at Octopus in Santa Cruz.

When I have the opportunity, I enjoy working on open source software, participating in industry Slack groups, and podcasting.

You can find me at GitHub, Dribbble, Twitter,, and my Spec podcast, Does Not Compute (coming soon; it's a secret to everyone).

Here are some things I've made, and companies I've worked with:
