This is Chad Weider, a twenty-something young urban professional living comfortably and contentedly in beautiful San Francisco, California, USA.
I am a midwesterner from the northwest suburbs of the greater-Chicagoland Area. I attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and with that done, quickly left for California.
While at University, I studied the not-so-terribly related fields of computer science (major), business (minor), math (minor), and design. But you from the internet may know me better for some of the work I’ve on on the Mac as author of the (now deprecated – though still used) CTGradient code for Cocoa.
I spend my days developing software at Twitter. After hours I am a cook, thinker, designer, tinkerer, and aspiring polymath.
I like pretty things, interesting problems, and useless facts. You’ll often see me passing my idle time wandering through the Wikipedia, watching C-SPAN, or indulging in the derelict trivia that makes this world so Interesting.
