Who Writes for Don’t Quit Your Day Job…?

PK (mail PK) (follow PK on Twitter)

PK is a software engineer by trade, living and working in Silicon Valley.  He also (as of recently) runs the Computer, Tablet, and Phone price comparison & Amazon price tracking site called CompareLook (consider it a beta for now; your feedback – and you sending it around – is appreciated!)

He’s the webmaster and administrator of Don’t Quit Your Day Job, and the author of ~90% of the articles on the site (and all of the calculators).  For more PK, check out his segment on the Stacking Benjamins podcast, or follow the site on Seeking Alpha.

His hobbies mostly match his professional life: you can find many of his hardware projects through his Hackaday IO Profile here.  Here is a link to his Github profile.  PK writes C++ during the daylight hours, and mostly C, C++, Javascript, HTML, PHP, Python, R and VHDL at night.
