You've Found my Website!

Welcome to my homepage; I’m Wesley Coakley, a software engineer at NVIDIA working in Research-Triangle Park in North Carolina.

I use this space to explore the ideas I am passionate about; I enjoy writing a great deal (especially when I am inspired about something)… I hope that you’ll enjoy reading and exploring the content I create here, I’ve invested a good amount of thought into this space; everything here (from the content to the design to the lovingly-written HTML) is deliberate and can be thought of as a reflection of me and my personality, taste, and character.

If you want to know more about me personally you should check out my personal wiki which is a set of loosely-organized hyperlinked pages that all focus on a given topic and document my thoughts and experiences on that word or phrase.

These are all the articles I've published here; although they are considered complete once they're listed publicly, please keep in mind that the contents of these articles may change over time.
