Q: How did you get started on Episode Ninja?

With the rise of binge-watching TV shows through streaming services, I found myself wanting to go back and watch some of the best episodes of my favorite shows.

> The website has been steadily growing since launch and is currently at more than 200,000 unique visitors per month.

I couldn’t find a good place to find these rankings online other than random articles written by folks across different websites. It seemed like there should be an objective way to aggregate ratings and rank episodes of a show; thus Episode Ninja was born.

I had the idea for Episode Ninja fairly early in my career as a developer. At the time, my focus mostly revolved around front-end design and development using HTML and CSS without much heavy technical lifting.

Although I did study Computer Science in college for a few semesters before dropping out, my technical skills are primarily self-taught. It took a few years (and job changes) before I had real full-stack development skills required to actually build a prototype of the site.
