Hi, I'm Yaakov.

Senior Developer

I'm a professional software developer and systems administrator based in Sydney Australia. I usually work on build systems, backend servers, and libraries, but every so often I build something user-interactive such as this little website. I infrequently blog^ and sometimes even speak at conferences about things I've learned along the way, as well as other topics I am interested in, which these days is mostly Pokémon and amateur radio.

I am also a maintainer of SteamKit   and ValveKeyValue   and have worked on other tools and projects for the Steam modding and reverse-engineering community, including vzip/vunzip  , a FUSE filesystem handler, and a couple different iOS apps to view in-game inventories.
