TalkPython interviewed me about Grokking Algorithms! Listen here: https://talkpython.fm/episodes/show/82/grokking-algorithms-in-python

I've been drawing and programming for the last two decades, and enjoy both very much. I started coding by making video games in Basic and ActionScript, and I sold my first game at age 14. After getting my MS from UChicago, I've been working at startups that align with my interests: books (Scribd) and art (Etsy). I'm currently a Staff Engineer at Etsy, where I help our sellers sell more goods.

I have been teaching for the last seven years. I started by teaching the Intro to Python class at Noisebridge. Over the years, I have tried to understand how to break down hard concepts so that they are easy to learn. My first book, Grokking Algorithms, came out in 2016. I blog at adit.io and tweet at @_egonschiele.
