i feel like i lucked into software. i was a hungry kid who haunted tech events because there was always pizza. i don't mean hungry like ambitious i mean like literally not possessing money for food. i'd go to these python meetups and see these stacks of mid-grade pizza that nobody wanted to touch so i'd just walk home carrying seven pizzas that i'd eat for days. eventually i got a job writing python this way and the rest is history.


@garbados I shared this story here before, but when I was attending Portland State a few friends and I wrote a python script with Beautiful Soup that scraped college even calendars for keywords like "food", "pizza", etc and built a calendar of free events with free food.
