What is tygertec all about?
tygertec is a software engineering blog. It’s all about the code. Or as I mused to myself during a hazy afternoon run along the Brooklyn waterfront,
tygertec is a collection of random abstract semi-pragmatic thoughts on the art and practice of modern software engineering. Expect a medley of lowbrow programming puns and philosophical reflections aimed at refining our grasp of this curiously wondrous craft.
Yeah. It must’ve been hot that day…
Can I buy you a coffee?
“I just love the original content on tygertec.com. Can I buy you a coffee or something?”
Of course! Coffee helps me keep the lights on. Plus it tastes really good.Buy me a coffee
Who is Ty Walls?
Ty Walls is the guy inside the “tyger” suit. He’s usually seen around code-landia with a big toothy grin and a bounce in his step, waving at tourists and park workers. Free HugOps. Pictures with the tyger cost $20, plus the prime rate. ;)
But seriously ;-)
For a serious treatment of Ty, see Ty Walls, the “ty” in tygertec (meta C.V.)

Once upon a time, this site was the only result when you Googled “tygertec”. Nowadays, you’ll see all sorts of results. All these kids, walking on my lawn… :) Which sites and accounts am I actually affiliated with?
The Real tygertec
The following sites have user accounts called “tygertec”. I did in fact create these accounts at one time or another.
|Stack Overflow||That is embarrassingly me. Unfortunately I’m a bigger S.O. consumer than contributor.|
|XDA forums||I created the account intending to contribute to the community, but I got too busy to do anything with it.|
|Memrise||I’m a fan of mnemonic techniques. I played with Memrise when they first launched.|
|Ecomodder||and CleanMPG: When gas first hit $5 a gallon I learned the lost art of “hypermiling”. I could squeeze 50MPG from my 26MPG EPA-rated Corolla!|
Impostor tygertec’s! =P
I’m not affiliated with anything else called “tygertec”. Most of the other instances are accounts for gaming sites and forums. I’m not much of a gamer. For me, writing code is much more fulfilling than playing games. Funny story: I have a weak math background, partly because I spent math class distracted writing BASIC programs on my TI-83. Here are some notable “tygertec” accounts that I hereby disown and ban from my lawn:
|GitHub||Someone took my moniker in 2014 and just sat on it. ( My GitHub account is tygerbytes.)|
|YouTube||There is another gaming-centric “tygertec” which I am unaffiliated with|
|Google+||Not me. Seems like this user is really into gaming.|
