🔥 “I’ve been designing and creating ever since I was a child, whether that was making spaceships out of plastic cups or painting, it’s been a constant influence in everything I do. To merge my love for creativity and technology I’ve taught myself modern front end development and aspire to build a career within it.” — @Jamie R. Wilson. Check out his portfolio here!

“I’m a passionate and driven individual who loves coding, traveling and meeting new people. I strongly believe in exposure and gaining experience. I also crave writing media queries as weird as that sounds, and with every line of code I write, I strive to make the web a beautiful place.”

Overheard in Chingu

We are really, really close to having a public beta of our game, even though it doesn’t have all the feature we imagined it to have, it is still a game, in the truest sense!

Networked a ton and found three leads to potential jobs. Sat down for coffee with two people and both seem like viable developer positions I could fill. Excited to start applying to jobs in a couple weeks!
