Hi, I'm Wei. I'm a Data Products Engineer at TellApart. I enjoy building great teams to build great products.
At Duke, I created Groupworked, a web
app to find who are the best people to work with at Duke, and
Askapade, a web app that lets you ask your
friends for help, keep track of replies and reward them with virtual gifts.
A long time ago, I also created WeiWatch: a flexible iPhone stopwatch that helps you keep track of how long you take to do routine tasks. Unfortunately I had to remove it from the AppStore after having no time to support it.
On name confusion:
My given name is Jian Wei and my surname is Gan. In Chinese, the surname, or family name, is written (and spoken) before the given name, so my name in Chinese is Gan Jian Wei. However, in many western countries such as the USA, the given name is the "first name" and the surname is the "last name." Following this use of "first" and "last," my name should be Jian Wei Gan, and that's in fact what I use on my resume.
You can just call me Wei.
