Jason Wei graduated from Stanford University in 2011 with a B.S. in Mathematical Computational Science, a minor in Statistics, and an M.S. in Management Science & Engineering with a concentration in Machine Learning. He spent his first two years in college with startups in Silicon Valley, and it was at his second startup (BillShrink, Inc) that he was introduced to Android.
Since then he has developed a handful of applications ranging from silly screen prank applications to serious financial pricing and modeling tools. He also enjoys working with APIs and competing in application development contests – winning a number of contests hosted by companies like Google, MyGengo, IndexTank, amongst others. In addition to developing applications, Jason enjoys writing Android tutorials and sharing his own development experiences on his blog (thinkandroid.wordpress.com), and it was through his blog that he was first invited to be a technical reviewer for the book Learning Android Game Programming. Jason is currently working as a quantitative trader in New York.
