Aaron Kalin is a geek that has been programming since age 11 and has been hooked ever since. By day he’s working for Hashrocket in Chicago. By night you’ll see him hacking on everything from side projects to game servers. Occasionally he dresses up in a Stormtrooper costume for charity, cheering up sick kids in hospitals.
