About Me

I am Spencer Hakim, a software/web developer and New York City native. I have several years’ experience working with Node.js, TypeScript, C#, Java, Scala, C++/CLI, C++, C, PHP, MySQL/MS-SQL/PostreSQL, MongoDB, HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. I am also somewhat familiar with Objective-C, Python, Perl, Ruby, and Bash scripting.

In my free time, I enjoy creating/hacking/forking/breaking things, building things with LEGOs, playing PC/console/handheld/card/board games, watching quality movies and television (read: binging on Netflix), trying out various whiskies at local tastings, funding various interesting projects on Kickstarter, and using Oxford commas. I’ve also been known to spend some of my down time practicing and improving my design and graphical skills; I’m not completely useless in that field.

Some of my personal achievements include receiving the prestigious TIME Person of the Year award in 2006, being a part of the US FIRST Robotics “One Day Wonder” back in 2004, and catching/trading for all 151 original Pokémon in my copy of Pokémon Blue when I was a kid.
