The creativity of Bryan's coworkers has finally forced him to replace his corporate speak bio. At Code Climate, he holds the records for taking the site down accidentally the most times and also having written the most code in that had to be rewritten later because it was horribly broken. As a converted New Yorker, he aspires to someday be able to cook like David Chang and mix cocktails like Phil Ward.

A native of the City of Brotherly Love, Jenna now happily calls New York home.

Nico handles sales and accounts at Code Climate. When he's not on the phone you can find him eating Japanese food and dreaming of his next trip to Tokyo.
Noah wrote a program once to catalog his parents' LaserDisc collection. LaserDiscs did not catch on, but the programming part stuck. He's dabbled in a half dozen different languages, worked in and attempted to rescue many codebases with unpublishable GPAs and has been an active contributor to open source software (especially Oink). He has since replaced his LaserDisc collection with Blue Ray discs, which are totally going to catch on.
Noah was tweaking computers in the basement of his childhood home before he could speak coherent English - seriously. His notable engineering "features" are fluency in a slew of stacks and languages and a propensity to dance at his desk. When not authoring meticulously-crafted code, he can be found biking aimlessly around his native city or satisfying his inner political junkie.
Pat Brisbin is an author and self-taught Software Engineer obsessed with producing correct code. When not using Test Driven Development to keep Ruby's dynamic nature in check, he can be found loudly trying to convert everyone at Code Climate to Haskell.
Scott became curious about Python while working around a team of data scientists and hasn’t looked back. He likes to think of himself as the foremost hummus aficionado on the entire eastern seaboard. He also likes to think that he’s a pretty good juggler, but has yet to graduate to four objects and has broken more things while juggling than he likes to admit.
Todd grew up in the friendly flatness of the Midwest where his obsession with both music and computers were born. After a 7 year layover in Los Angeles, he has settled here in NYC to contribute to Code Climate's goal of making the world of code a better place in which to live. If you see him around, say hi. Be forewarned, however, that he's probably going to talk to you about functional programming.
Will Fleming was raised with a policy of benign neglect & access to the family IBM 386. As a consequence, he has a healthy fear of exposed wiring & untested code. When he's not in front of a computer, he can often be found wandering in the woods.
