About

Hello Curious Humans!

My name is Tyler Elliot Bettilyon (Teb, for short) and first of all, thank you for taking the time to read this note. My mission in life is to watch the world learn. I have spent most of my life teaching and mentoring in some form or another and I’m on a quest to keep on sharing what I’ve learned through my writing, open source curricula, and videos.

My background and expertise is primarily software engineering and computer science, but I am deeply interested in the enormous (and growing) overlap between software and other fields like genetics, genomics, healthcare, finance, politics, and so much more.

In our Medium publication we publish educational articles like our introductory series on Neural Networks and Genetics 101: What Exactly is a Gene?; academic musings like Fibbonacci's Strange Loop and The Architecture of Life's Source Code; practical tutorials like How I Optimized Conway's Game of Life; and social commentary about software's impact on us all, like this end of decade reflection on the Metrification of Everything.

We also sometimes release open source side projects related to our writing, like our implementation of Conway's Game of Life and corresponding website.

Our flagship offering, though, is our open source curricula. These materials are primarally meant for teachers (I use them regularly myself to teach classes), but we always write them with self directed students in mind. We are mostly focused on creating high quality materials on foundational topics from a variety of software fields and disciplines.

Our list of course materials continues to grow, and currently includes:


We have released all of these materials to the public domain in an effort to improve access to computer science education.

Finally, we also producing educational videos. Some of these are series, like our networking series exploring the popular interview question, "What happens when I type www.google.com into my browsers URL bar?" Some are standalone topic lessons, like this video comparing compilers and interpreters. We also occasionally publish recordings of online classes such as these (which were taught using our open source curricula).

Thank you for stopping by and never stop learning!

Goals
$101 of $750 per month
When we make $750 / month we'll make all Teb's Lab publication articles free (ahead of the paywall on Medium). Currently roughly half of our articles are behind the paywall.
