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, fun to use and a pleasure to work on.

Today I’m excited about low-level languages like Zig and Odin, the Handmade software movement, and building better languages and tools for developers, artists, publishers, game makers and other storytellers.

I’m a British/Italian dual national living in Innsbruck, Austria, where you'll find me shovelling snow or on a bike.
