Hello World. I am Bob. I started buying a few crypto in 2013. The little price bumps paid my credit card bills for a few years. Then in 2017 I caught the July pop of Ethereum and the money and I both got serious. I’ve been watching Ivan religiously ever since.
I am a recovering rocket scientist. I code in Fortran, C, and Matlab for a living…for the military…which is crushing my soul. I don’t remember much from grad school 20 years ago, so I’m ripe for a retraining. My passion is to build the next brave new world. I see crypto as the foundation, and the best weapon against the corruption of the world today.
I just finished the Deep Fundamentals course and I feel 1000x wiser than when I started. I can’t wait to get my hands dirty coding smart contracts. I did 16 years in the spacecraft flight software test world so I’m used to the “light it and forget it” maintenance plan. We don’t ship until we can prove you can’t shake it apart…with rockets. I think I bring the right TDD mindset and temperament to the crypto space. I also did 8 years in tool UI design (and test, of course), so I’m used to the callback “squirrel chase”…and how to generate automated tests to tie the squirrels down.
Thank you guys SO much for this life-changing course. I can’t wait to see what’s possible here.
Oh…and I’m the “cartoon bubble guy”. I like to take notes in 3D. Worse: I like to share my notes with random strangers both to cement my knowledge by re-teaching it and to evangelize my friends and neighbors about the good news of crypto! See you soon !
