Phil Harnish

YouTube

Phil has been working on YouTube’s play button for a couple years now. He enjoys continuous deployment and long stretches of behavior driven development. Between the years of keyboard playing cat videos he’s learned a thing or two about the strain scale has on design and usability. If he ever escapes the clutches of a cushy day job, you’ll likely find him hacking on yet another casual-social-game without a business model.
