Ka Wai Cheung

Ka Wai

Mind and body in San Francisco. Heart in Chicago. Stomach in both places.

Ka Wai’s introduction to software began with reading BASIC code off Apple IIc games as a seven-year-old. His crowning achievement came when he wrote a program that would play the notes to the Beverly Hills Cop theme song. After a long hiatus with tech, Ka Wai fell back in love with web design and development in the late 1990s. And so, he leapt back into programming for a second time. Since co-founding We Are Mammoth in 2006, he’s authored “The Developer’s Code” and guided our first product, DoneDone. Today, he continues to speak and write on topics related to software and business.
