Nick Alto

Nick writes software. And graffiti. On the software bit: his main focus is iOS development, and he also has chops ranging from web development to low level kernel development. He has written Linux I/O schedulers in C/C++, developed iOS and Android apps, and played around with Haskell, Node.js, and Ruby.  On the graffiti bit: he’s passionate about spray-painting people’s garages. His urban art ranges from birds to blossoms, from whimsical to wacky. He’s inspired by De La Soul and everything that is Portland’s hip-hop scene. Nick’s multi-faceted talent makes him our young savant. His pre-Artefact life includes time at Intel and Mentor Graphics. One  proud moment was a collaboration with Intel to create an Android live wallpaper that emulated active Intel silicon. Really.
