About

Casey standing in front of some funky art wearing a cool hat.

I'm Casey Pitman, and I love solving problems.

I love puzzles. I love repairing cars and household appliances. And I love to code.

I began learning to code out of curiosity. I quickly became fascinated by the multitude of problems to solve and all the tools coding provided me. Through coding I learned to identify multiple solutions to any given problem. Solving problems through coding gives me satisfaction and a sense of purpose.

I live in Northeast Texas with my wife and two kids. There are a lot of pine trees and squirrels.

Skills

I am a self-taught coder who uses multiple texts and online resources to acquire and sharpen my skills.

My life has taken quite a few turns, and the skills I've learned along the way have proven useful in my coding.

As a journalist I learned to communicate clearly and to review, revise, and edit. As a law student I learned to think logically and develop a plan before acting. As an educator I learned to plan in great detail while remainging flexible enough to deal with the possibilities I never saw coming.

And I’m still learning. I try to learn something new from each project. I am always looking for the next tool to add to my expanding toolbox.
