Hi, I'm Nick Winter.


I'm leveling up coding education.

Learn to code with CodeCombat: a coding game that teaches computer science. 20M learners and counting. We're open source!

I made Skritter with George and Scott.

You write Chinese and Japanese characters. Web, iOS, and Android. Skritter is ace.

I wrote a book.

It's called The Motivation Hacker. It's about getting yourself to want to do everything you always wanted to want to do, and you will like it.

I own only 99 things.

People are surprisingly interested in this. Here's the list. Helps me not think about my things.

I helped out with Quantified Mind.

Learn what affects your cognitive performance (butter?). My friend Yoni does all the work.

I'm Chloe Fan's husband.

And also the dad of Max (2015), Clark (2017), and Ruby (2021). We recently moved from San Francisco to the Pacific Northwest.

Let's exchange thoughts.
