Nick Sweeting

I dropped out of high school in Shanghai to start coding, and have been founding and working at startups in San Francisco, Portland, Montreal, and NYC ever since. I’ve been working with Django since my first under-the-table gig for a Shanghainese food-delivery startup, but have carried those skills with me from the healthcare and agriculture industries, to now the online gaming and blockchain worlds by cofounding a poker startup in Medellín called OddSlingers. I love making mistakes and asking stupid questions, it’s the best way to learn!

I also love learning about distributed systems and doing security activism, you may have heard of me as the “Equifax guy” who made the NYTimes for creating a hoax phishing site that Equifax accidentally linked millions of customers to.
