  • “My name is Jamie Wong and I like to build things. Coding personal projects since the 7th grade has given me a great appreciation for perpetual self-learning through doing. I’m a huge advocate of open source, test driven development (untested code is broken code) and code review (unreviewed code is bad code). I have a fascination with puzzles and problem solving that both led me to success in national and international competition and fostered my passion in programming. When I’m not pushing the latest commits to my projects on github, I can be found answering questions on Stack Overflow, writing up posts for my blog, editing my vim config, or playing badminton.”
