johanv.xyz, my chill website
Hi, I'm Johan Vandegriff, and this is johanv.xyz: my new, awesome, spectacular, and chill website! Here's a random interesting fact about me:
My favorite computer game is Nethack, a roguelike from 1987 that is still being developed today.
This is a drawing I made of the Erasable Inc. improv group at the University of Maryland (UMD) after their 24-hour show.
This video is for a propsed research project for Gemstone at UMD. I ended up joining another project instead, but I still have the initial version and plan to make it into a product someday.
Here's a snippet from a quintessential blog post of mine:

We were visited by a band of rookies. They do not perceive the insurmountable tasks that lie ahead of them. I attempted to affright them by disclosing to them the monster that is The Code, but alas, they took an interest in this beast. I fear there is no way to warn them; their days ahead appear grim.
The Great Git attacked our code today. I researched its weaknesses in the Archives of Google and found individuals who were in a similar predicament. Armed with this knowledge, we were able to send it howling back from whence it came.
NASA GSFC Internship
I fixed bugs in C code for NASA’s core Flight System by writing unit tests on a CentOS Linux virtual machine (using VirtualBox). To help write unit tests, I wrote some bash scripts to generate skeleton functions, then filled them in manually with code to test each case. At the end of the summer, I created a poster and presented it at a lab-wide showcase day.
