I'm Andy Russell, a software developer from Boston. I work on the Inpatient Clinicals team at athenahealth, developing an electronic health record for hospitals.
I enjoy programming at work and at home. I have work experience developing and testing full-stack web applications, and I dabble in both low-level and game programming on my own time. The code powering this website is written by me. I am interested in programming language theory and implementation: I've written a compiler for a music programming language.
I graduated from Pomona College, majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Classics. I can translate Latin at a high level.
Diversity and inclusiveness are extremely important to me, especially in tech. In college I led Hack, an organization dedicated to hosting hackathons emphasizing learning over competition.
I love both learning and teaching: I've held nightly sessions teaching web development to both new and experienced programmers.
