I’m Curtis, a lover of Github’s Newsfeed, and AWS' Spot Instances. I’ve spent the last 5 years losing faaaar too much sleep to hackathons, side projects, and writing a weekly newsletter about project ideas. This site is my Yellow Brick Road to becoming a brilliant programmer.

I often find myself getting lost at work and missing the bus on purpose to push that last commit. Work is exciting because I get to decipher written communication and improve upon the solutions of others.
While writing tons of documentation in the process :)
Three bullet points why:
