8th Light Craftsman since April 16th, 2012
Wai Lee was introduced to programming during a Java course in high school. It was a seed that took its time to sprout, as he went on to study Applied Mathematics in college. In those math classes, he was introduced to C and Scheme and his interest in programming grew. After meeting several 8th Lighters at a Clojure meet up, Wai Lee began an apprenticeship under Micah Martin and accepted a position as software craftsman.
In his time at 8th Light, Wai Lee has seen that his responsibilities include not just the writing of code but communicating to clients about that code. A professional approach to communication, based on transparency, is the best way to start a project. The most frightening step is the first, so communication is the best way to get a project moving.
Outside of work, he enjoys skateboarding, cycling, working on Project Euler, and playing Dungeons & Dragons.
Wai Lee received his B.S. in Applied Mathematics from the University of Chicago in 2010.
