Meet the Gang
I'm (relatively) new here at Chess.com, and I love it. I've been doing iOS here for a few months and I can safely say that I've enjoyed very aspect of this job. From challenging problems, to making my own hours, to getting to work with supremely cool people from all around the world.
The latest perk has been this year's meetup (my first) in Fort Lauderdale Florida, where chess.com flew me and a whole bunch of other chess nerds together, put me up in a hotel that was far too nice for me, and let me finally meet some of the aforementioned awesome folks I've been working with.

Obviously I had a great time, and obviously I got way less work done than I probably could have, but damned if it wasn't amazing to put face to the names (and programming mannerisms)! I'm not sure if I have a takeaway, but I certainly had a blast and can't wait for next year!
