Nathan Kozyra has been programming both recreationally and professionally for more than a decade now. His first experience came while writing games on his grandfather's Commodore 64, and in the ensuing decades, he's crafted technological solutions and applications in nearly every major language for a host of software and media companies as a developer, advisor, creative technologist, and CTO. He is currently the CTO of Pointslocal. A new-language enthusiast and C++ stalwart, his attention was quickly captured by Google's Go language, both for the language's creators and ethos as well as its apparent post-C approach to systems languages. Having dived in quickly, Go is now his go-to language for fast, concurrent applications.
