Hi! I'm Jess. I do web development, and I really, really like it. For fun I explore algorithms (Project Euler), read (mostly sci-fi/fantasy and dystopian fiction), play (Legos, Legend of Zelda, platformers, and modern board games), and volunteer with organizations that help kids learn to program.

My first computer was a TI-99 purchased at a garage sale when I was a child. It hooked up to my television and lacked persistent storage. I made it draw flashing, colorful blocks that danced across the screen. I made it count really, really high. I made the keyboard double as a musical instrument. I made it do everything I could think of while I worked through the included book, Beginner's BASIC. When school started in the fall, I wrote programs in my notebooks instead of essays and was roundly scolded by my teachers.
