Hello my name is Nathan. As a day job I teach academy computer classes. My hobby and sometimes side-job is programming.
A little background
This may be like starting political or sports debate for nerds, but here is my preferred platforms/services.
Laptop OS — Windows
Mobile OS — AndroidBrowser — Mozilla Firefox
Media — Amazon
Social — Twitter @qw3nv (Unfortunately I do not have the qw3n handle which appears abandoned.)
The good news is I’m not locked into one specific platform. Now as long as I can keep them playing nicely together.
What is qw3n?
I get this question a lot. This started back when I was in elementary and we needed to create usernames for saved games. Since using your real name was boring. I would create a random string of characters. This quickly got unmanageable trying to remember which gibberish name was yours. So, I looked at the keyboard one day and decided I needed something short, unique and easy to type. Since all good code names need a number I decided to follow the keyboard and use “qw” and the number “3”. The letter “n” is my initial to make it somewhat related to me.
Qw3n was not really meant to be pronounced, but if you must go with the closest phonetic/l33t speak equivalent Quinn. Alternatively some have shortened it to Q which also works.
