About Jacob Helwig

I love finding ways to remove road blocks, and stereamline the development process. I have over ten years of software development and operations experience, and I am always looking for ways to put that to use in improving the quality of life and productivity of those around me.

I am a founding member of, and a former organizer for, the first of the many weekly hackathons here in Portland, OR. In addition to the weekly hackathon, these are a few of the things I have helped organize:

I am a habitual learner, and am always seeking better (more efficient & elegant) ways to do whatever it is that I am working on at the time. I have also earned a reputation of having very high standards for code review, and have repeatedly been told by colleagues that they look forward to the code reviews since they have always been very constructive.

I can most easily be reached via email and Twitter.
