Hi there 👋

This is a social network, right? Here's a little bit about me!


  • 17 years of software development
  • 6 years of C and C++, realtime applications
  • 9 years of web development in many languages and frameworks
    • Java with JSP
    • Python and Django
    • Groovy on Grails
    • NodeJS
    • Go ❤️
    • AngularJS
    • VueJS ❤️
  • Now I work at GitHub on :dependabot: writing a lot of Go and Ruby, much of which is open source!

Stuff I make 👨‍💻

  • multiplayer clone of Set card game Play - Source
  • clone of Photosynthesis board game (multiplayer or vs AI) Play - Source
  • multiplayer clone of Resistance social game Play - Source
  • I ported a C physics library to Go Play - Source

Favorite board and card games ♠️ ♥️ ♣️ ♦️

  • Puerto Rico - low randomness
  • Small World - low randomness
  • Settlers of Catan - good for new board gamers
  • Oh Hell - good for groups of many sizes and very easy to pick up (3-7 people)
  • Euchre - good with a partner, not as big of a commitment as hearts/spades

Favorite video games for kids 🎮

  • Stardew Valley
    • Learn about how food is grown, how seasons work, no death or losing
  • Outer Wilds
    • Learn about solar systems, why night and day exist, orbital physics 😆
  • Wilmot's Warehouse
    • Cooperative game of organization, no outright losing until the end
