  • What programming languages and frameworks do you use?
  • Have you been to any SendBird events or meetups?
  • Do you have any SendBird projects that we can check out?
  • What SendBird SDKs and open source tools are you using?
  • Where else are you on the Internet?

My name is Eric and I’m a Support Engineer at SendBird. I’m very excited to get to know you and help make your SendBird projects successful!

As a programmer, I’ve done few projects in my free time or at the hackathons. I’ve built web application FoodBeGone that lets restaurant/grocery store owners upload their food items made by their surplus materials to end-users seeking convenient meals at discounted prices, Barbershop Chatbot that automates hair styling service reservation process. I like coding in Java (Android) and recently got interested in JavaScript (React + Redux). I’ve spent good amount of time thinking about APIs, Virtual Assistant, and Chatbot, and more recently Support Process Design and Community building.

When I’m not programming I like to play tennis, running, cooking, watching Netflix!

Message me anytime to talk about chat/call, startups, community, gifs or emoji.
:telephone: :smile:

Hey SendBird community :slight_smile: We’re excited to be here and so cool to see you have a community! Hope we can be helpful!

Our Background (as a company):
inRecovery is an addiction recovery platform that helps healthcare providers and hospital systems become “tech-enabled”. We serve as their backbone and help make the treatment experience more personalized through the use of data. Additionally, being their infrastructure, we help them adopt point-solution really fast via API’s. Really modernizing our antiquated “legacy” healthcare system. We believe in collaboration, so we help plugin other startups with amazing technology.

We go full circle by helping everyone win, starting with the patient:

  1. Patients have a much more meaningful and personal experience.
  2. Families stay more connected with their loved ones during treatment
  3. Clinicians leverage our tech to become even more amazing at their jobs.

My background (personal):
I’m a serial tech entrepreneur. Started coding around 8 yo, mainly from being massively bullied lol. Computers never kicked my butt, so I stuck to them. As a result, I had my first e-commerce startup acquired when I was 25, by Insight Venture Partners. Later founded one of the first mobile commerce platforms, taking a bet we’d all be shopping on our phones in the future. Turned out to be right and Magento bought us in 2011.

After my second exit, I moved to NY and tried drugs for the first time. I quickly became very addicted to cocaine and later to every drug I could get my hands on, including heroin. Long story short, I spent my 30th bday homeless, extremely addicted and pretty much without hope. Thankfully I got back on my feet, built a consulting firm and was back to “normal”, but I remained heavily addicted to drugs for many years.

In 2016, my best friend passed away from an overdose and that woke me up and I checked myself into rehab. During treatment, I found a major need for tech innovation and had the vision for what is now inRecovery. I truly feel I found my passion there, finally a way to put my talents to good use. Shortly after, founded inRecovery and fast forward 2.5 years - we have an awesome team, great product and we’re crushing it.

inRecovery proudly powers the 2nd largest treatment center in the US and doing our part to help people beat addiction and reintegrate as thriving members of society.

Really excited to start on our journey with Sendbird. It looks like an awesome platform but most importantly you guys seem to have a great team and culture there, which is the most important factor for us.

Happy to contribute to the developer community. Our team has tons of experience in and love React and React Native :heart: We’re ultimately a bunch of tech nerds and engineers, including myself :space_invader: :nerd_face: :metal:

Hi, I’m a novice android programmer with sendbird, as programming languages I mainly use Kotlin and Java.
I haven’t had the pleasure of attending a Sendbird event yet, but I’d love to.
I am currently working on the Sixthcontinent application chat:


I’m using SDK sendbird-android-sdk:3.0.142
In my free time I like swimming, cycling, and taking beautiful horse rides.
Now I’m very busy with this chat, it’s the first time I’ve done one and Sendbird seems like a great tool but I still know too little about it, I still need to understand a lot more.
Unfortunately the documentation seems a bit jagged and the test project too small. I think I need help, I hope the community can help me!

Hi @antonio.vitiello !

Welcome to Sendbird User community!

I also do code in Java :coffee: (?!)
Thank you for sharing your feedback on the product docs and test projects.
Could you tell us a bit more about what you are trying to achieve in the forum?
