About Me

Hey there, my name is Scott Motte. You can call me Mot, for short.

I am a software developer from Perris, CA, now living in Los Angeles, CA. I love to code, specialize in Ruby, and have a talent for product.

I'm self-taught and creative. I'm a not as quick on the uptake of the more computer science-y concepts, but I'm one of the best when it comes to shipping code. I'm continually learning and believe that it is not how good you are but how good you want to be, and at the moment I'm taking the Stanford Machine Learning course.

Check out my code on GitHub, take a peak at my resume, or reach out to me at mot@mot.la. I'd love to hear from you!


Community & Talks

I wouldn't be where I am today without help from the community. I've tried to pay it forward and the following shows off some of that.


Products & Open Source

I ❤️ the creative process of writing code. It is often more art than science to me. It's cathartic as well, and I spend much of my spare time doing it. The following shows some of the work I've done - both products I've built and open source I've created.


Writings

One of my continual regrets is that I do not write more often. Nevertheless, below are some writings I've done.
