Just a nerd, standing in front of a compiler, asking it to humour him.

I’m Nick Cernis [“Chernis”], a senior software engineer shipping tools for developers and publishers at WP Engine. I love software that’s fast, correct and fun to use and maintain.

I’ve been the release lead for a popular web framework, built a top-10 iOS app in the early App Store, and worked remotely for 15 years with founders, startups, and mature Scrum teams in the U.S. and Europe.

I’m a British/Italian dual national living in Innsbruck, Austria, and a native English speaker learning German and Italian. I have a BSc in Computer Animation and Special Effects, but I promise not to point out the identical scratches on different X-wings in Star Wars: The Force Awakens until the movie’s over.
