S4 Bonus: Greg Schier, Insomnia

Greg Schier grew up in a small town, without a lot of opportunity. He rode BMX bikes and skate boards, and spent a lot of time building ramps and jumps for them both. At that time... he had no idea what programming entailed. He went to university and it was at that point that he learned about programming, after spending some time in mechanical engineering and then moving over to coding.

He recently moved outside of Montreal, into a house with chickens... and he now finds himself getting into homesteading, gardening, and wood working - creating many improvements around his place to increase the quality of life. The way he describes it, he is midway to a life change towards analog hobbies away from the digital world and the city.

While he was working for a company making a transactional email API, he realized that they didn't have a good way to interact with said API. There needed to be an easy way to interact with the solution as a customer, as a developer, etc. His tool, which ended up taking off, was born out of trying to solve this problem.

This is the creation story of Insomnia.
