This is the personal website of Evan Conrad, a generalist software engineer based in the United States.

I work at Segment, where I:

  • build the infrastructure that powers Segment's developer platform,
  • build a lexer/parser and user interface for a Domain Specific Language we use to filter JSON data.

I also maintain Quirk, an open source app that helps folks with various mental health disorders with their treatment. Before that, I worked on a small feature on Kindle during an internship at Amazon. If you'd like to know more about my dev experience so far, there's a long-form explanation here.

If you'd like get coffee in SF, feel free to shoot me a note at the email:

๐Ÿคนโ€ Family Quest

Do you happen to know Bill Joy, the co-founder of Sun Microsystems, creator of vi, and early developer of BSD Unix? My dad, an old school systems programmer from way-back-in-the-day claims that Bill Joy taught my elder brother (maybe around 10 years old at the time) how to juggle at a conference in the bay area years ago.

So if you happen to have a direct line to Bill Joy, would you please ask him if he knows how to juggle and if he happens to remember teaching a kid how to juggle at a conference years ago and report back.
