About Me

Hi! My name is Spike Grobstein and I need an outlet to write about stuff I care about. I’ve got some opinions, sometimes.

I’m a software engineer currently living in San Francisco, CA with my wife Eliz (Uh-Liz) and cat Ptera (short for Pterodactyl). I focus pretty much exclusively on developer tools (DevEX), but I’ve previously worked on Infrastrucure teams doin’ DevOps and/or developing web services and sites. Before that, I worked in the production/art departments of several companies in the screenprinting, fabric printing, offset printing industries. But I always leaned towards process optimization and automation, which got me where I am today.

Retro gaming is awesome. Gameboy modding (or electronics modding in general) is the best. Game dev sounds like it could be a lot of fun. I fantasize about making games for the NES or GameBoy but haven’t had the energy to get past basic prototypes.
