    Hi, I’m Theo Voss.


    I’m 4 years out of college. My first job was working in embedded engineering which basically came down to a c/c++ developer half the time (really fun) and someone who could do mindless tasks the other half of the time. I’m currently wrapping up my last two weeks at a small company no one has heard of where I primarily worked on a flask api that became a rails api and the ios app that used it. I haven’t touched the webapp and suck at front-end web. I’m leaving here to go and work at Amazon.


    This summer I’ve done a lot of kayaking with friends which has been a lot of fun.

    Always looking for the next book(s) I can really get caught up in. Terry Goodkind’s Law of Nines was the last one I devoured.

    I also usually have at least one active side project going on. Currently that side-project is a chess engine/front-end to validate what are valid moves (no AI) with the goal of making a star-trek 3-d chess engine. It’s a bit broken at the moment, but I’m planning on polishing it up and getting it to do standard chess over the next month.

        Working on fixing bugs in my chess program (side-project): http://theos-chess-api.herokuapp.com/chess/ (it’s on github: https://github.com/theovoss/Chess and https://github.com/theovoss/ChessApi)

        Getting back into work after a week and a half on vacation.

          personal: Find an annoying bug in my chess engine.

          work: work. ;)

          1. 1

            Working on fixing up a chess library I wrote a while back and writing a front-end for it so I can play with my friends. The end goal is to have a site where you can play star-trek chess or other chess derivatives. If I can get it working pretty well in the next week or so, I might sign up for a talk at pyohio about it. https://github.com/theovoss/Chess

              For work: removing a bunch of code that isn’t being used anymore. Merging in some features/bugfixes I did last week.

              For fun: probably writing stories about weird places around my city.

              Rest of the week:

              no clue
