Hello! I’m Nick Wertzberger, and I’m from Omaha, NE. I am really into testing, I care a lot about readable code, and am passionate about good software architecture. I write software that expands the impact of the people who use it.
At my day job, I am currently developing optimization software for the railroad, as well as doing a smattering of data science work, as the need arises.
