Hi there! My name is Elliot Nelson, and I’m a software engineer. This site is my personal blog, where I sometimes post articles about programming and software development, interspersed with long periods of silence.


  • Ruby, Javascript, Groovy, C
  • Data structures and algorithms of all kinds
  • Unit testing
  • Building stuff
  • Roller coasters
  • The #js13k game jam
    • Check out Raven, which took 3rd place in the 2018 js13k competition!


  • Python (sorry), Java (not sorry), Golang (gross)
  • Data analysis (too boring)
  • Peanut butter (too sticky)
