Chris Amatangelo is currently a web engineer at Door3, a development shop that specializes in designing and building enterprise business applications for web, social and mobile media. Previously a full-stack developer at AgencyRx, Chris delved into the world of Ruby on Rails as a co-founder of the startup Lily, a web application portal that specialized in streamlining the apartment application process in NYC. After receiving a degree in Advertising from Penn State University, Chris intended on focusing on web and UX/UI design - however, with an eye for design and a passion for programming, he quickly transitioned to the world of development and hasn’t looked back since.
In his spare time Chris enjoys playing the guitar, reading overly dense technical books, and going to software meetups for the free food.
