As of this post, Uptime Ventures, LLC is legally dissolved.

If you live in the Denver area, you probably know me, the person who is penning this blog post. I’m Nicholas Young, the one-man engineering team behind the company facade. For the last three years, I’ve worked on refining development tools and now, the ecosystems I contributed to are stabilizing. I’d like to begin using the tools, where in the past I’ve only built them.

To fulfill that goal, I’ve agreed to join a local company as a Senior Engineer, tasked with expanding their use of Rust.

During my time at Uptime Ventures, I became a maintainer of Gatsby, a React-based website generator and authored several core plugins that are collectively downloaded over 100,000 times per week; accelerated the development of Rust’s async networking ecosystem as a member of the associated working group; made significant improvements to Gotham, a Rust web framework; and finally, helped plan and present Colorado’s first Rust conference.

I’m proud of the work I’ve done under the Uptime Ventures name, and look forward to developing the future with my new coworkers.
