Jonathan Tang's Corner of the Web

Projects

Hello and welcome to my homepage!

I'm a computer programmer and occasional entrepreneur. I graduated from Amherst College in 2005 with a BA in CS. I'm currently living in Boston, MA, but looking to move out to Silicon Valley. My professional interests include programming language design, user interface design & programming, and AJAX webapps.

From January 2007 to June 2008, I cofounded GameClay, a webapp to make your own casual games online. It failed to get off the ground, but I learned some valuable lessons, many of which I've put up for public consumption. Before that, I worked at a financial software startup, writing their development environment and a trade verification webapp.

I like to play around with small programs and libraries in my spare time, and this website provides a home for them. Many of these libraries were written for GameClay and open-sourced upon its demise; some of the others are things I've had up on my Amherst webspace for ages that I've finally moved over to a proper home.
