Jason Goldstein

Developer, live music afficianado, serious coffee-drinker

I'm a Pythonista, JavaScript apologist, and Lead Developer at The Atlantic in Washington, DC.

I drink my coffee extra black, run a film production group called Be The Shoe out of New York as a hobby, have a Beagle puppy named Ziggy who ran for mayor, and see over 30 concerts per year.

Skip the social networks and email me.


I lead a developer team focused on the hardest problem on the web: how to fund journalism in ways that make for a great reader experience.
