About you

You’re probably the type of person your friends and family go to with their technical problems. When things get challenging, you don’t run away from the challenge, you run towards it. Your idea of a good time typically involves solving difficult puzzles and studying the most elegant solutions.

You likely got into programming computers out of curiosity because you wanted to know how to modify your favorite game or automate a repeated task. You didn’t get into programming just because it’s the hot thing to do right now.

Things about you that we DO NOT care about:
* Degrees
* Titles
* Past Employer Names
* School Names
* Grades

Things about you that we DO care about:
* Pride in what you produce, even if no one else sees it
* Great work ethic
* Passion for the best ideas, even if they aren’t yours
* Willingness to disagree and voice an alternative opinion if you believe it is correct, even if the person you disagree with is more experienced than you
