The name's Jason Gedge, but you've probably already figured that out. I'm a problem solver, with software being my medium of choice. Naturally, that led me to becoming a software developer.
In 2011, I received my Master of Science degree in Computing Science from the University of Alberta. My research took me into the field of computer vision, perhaps one of the fields of research I find most interesting. I also enjoy dabbling in computer graphics, image processing, and computational photography (kind of a hybrid of all of the above). In a more general sense, I am a big fan of processing and producing visual data.
Outside of work, I also enjoy composing music and playing guitar. In 2015 I became interested in maintaining better health, so I became a runner. I've since ran many half-marathons, and aim to exercise every other day. In the summer, I aim for at least 20km per week. I grew up in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador .
These days I'm working at Gadget, building the next generation development environment. Previously I worked at Shopify and YouTube, doing a little bit of everything, but with a lot of focus on developer productivity and software architecture.
