About Hacker Notes

Hi, my name is Nicholas and Hacker Notes is my personal blog. It is a collection of practical things I’ve picked up through my work in software, as well as writings on other subjects like travel, art, investing and life in New York. When it comes to programming, my work and my writing is overwhelmingly concerned with uncovering minimal, pragmatic solutions that lean on robust and proven stacks to address real business problems.

I have been putting my philosophies into practice while working with startups in New York since 2011. I keep a personal homepage at nicholas.zaillian.com. In addition to development consulting, I advise several startups. I can be reached by email at nicholas@zaillian.com.
