Hi, I'm Sharif.

I'm the founder of which lets you build web apps just by describing what they should do (we're hiring)! I previously founded Vectordash, a cloud gaming company backed by Y Combinator, and scaled it to thousands of users globally.

I live in San Francisco and previously studied computer science at University of Maryland. I'm interested in startups, behavioral psychology, and designing fun software experiences. My Twitter is @sharifshameem, my GitHub is @samin100, and my email is [email protected] (I respond to every personal email I get).
