The Moment
by Nathan Walker


Hi, I’m Nathan. I started this blog in December 2010 as a Tumblr site. You can find those old posts on Tumblr. The modern version of The Moment started in October 2011 and initially started as a tutorial-focused site. Today, The Moment focuses on opinions and links to things that I find interesting.

More About Me

I’m a college sophomore studying Computer Science at the George Washington University in Washington, DC. I’ve been breaking using computers since I was about three, and programming since middle school.

I’m also the web developer at The GW Hatchet, our independent, student-run newspaper. I’ve just started at the Hatchet, but look out for some big enhancements to the website coming down the road.

I love to code. I started out with C and PHP, but now JavaScript and Swift are my go-to languages. Recently, I’ve also been working on WordPress development with PHP. You can follow me on GitHub, if you’re interested in that sort of thing. There’s not a whole lot there yet, except a few projects that are in pretty early stages. You can also take a look at some of my programming projects on the Code page of this site.

When I’m not coding, you may also find me writing science fiction novels. I’ve completed National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) three times now [1], and I’m planning on doing it again in the future. Nothing that I’ve written has really made it quite to publishing quality yet, but I’m really proud of doing surviving NaNoWriMo.

Miscellaneous opinions that may offer some insight about me:

And that’s about it. Feel free to get in touch me with via the Contact link above.

About This Site

This site runs on custom software called Simple Blog Server, or SBS. SBS is based on Node.js and Nginx. This site is hosted on DigitalOcean. I’ve considered published SBS on GitHub, but I don’t think it’s really ready for anyone else to use, and I might even switch away from it someday.

The public theme of this site runs on Pure by Yahoo and the Google Fonts Merriweather and Lato.
