Peter Shih

Co-Founder and CTO of Celery which was acquired by Indiegogo in 2016.
I was a founder in the Y Combinator Summer 2012 batch.
Previously I was an iOS engineer at Foursquare and LinkedIn.
I mostly code in JavaScript now – preferring Node and React.
I also have a lot of experience with iOS – both native and hybrid apps.
When I'm not coding, I like to watch documentaries about the universe, astrophysics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning on The Great Courses.
I currently spend my time either in NYC or Palo Alto.
