Masters Student in Computer Science, admitted Autumn 2011
BioI'm Feross Aboukhadijeh, an entrepreneur, programmer, open source maintainer, startup founder, and mad scientist.
I build web apps like BitMidi, a free MIDI database, and Play, a music video app, and Study Notes, a site to help students study better and get into college.
Before that, I built PeerCDN, a peer-to-peer content delivery network to makes sites faster and cheaper, which was acquired by Yahoo.
I enjoy working on "mad science" — stuff that makes people say, "Whoa! I didn't know that was possible!".
I'm a graduate of Stanford University and I've worked at Quora, Facebook, Yahoo, and Intel. In the past, I did research in the Stanford human-computer interaction and computer security labs.
At Stanford, I taught computer science for 6 quarters to students in Stanford's CS 198 program, and was a teaching assistant for CS107: Computer Organization and Systems. I organized lots of sweet computing-related events as president of Stanford's Association for Computing Machinery chapter.
In September 2010, I built YouTube Instant (a really fast way to search YouTube) in just 3 hours as a bet with my roommate. The site garnered immediate worldwide media attention — 1 million visitors in 10 days, and hundreds of news stories. Chad Hurley, CEO and co-founder of YouTube, was so impressed that he immediately offered me a job at YouTube (which I had to turn down in order to finish my degree).
In my free time, I continue to maintain StudyNotes, a website to help students study better. I started it in high school and have been maintaining it ever since. For a sample, check out some AP US History notes or college essays.
I like long-distance running, traveling, vapourwave, anime, and games (counter-strike is still my favorite).
My resume is available if you want to be all, like, formal and stuff, dude. Email me at [my first name]@feross.org.
