Colton Lucas Adamski
Colton "AppValley" Lucas Adamski (born on May 3, 2001) is an American professional computer expert and author. Colton is the co-founder and CEO of AppValley LLC, a company that helps people obtain Apple-rejected applications with little hassle. He is also a software engineer, programmer, and software designer. Adamski is also the founder and head project manager of iRec, which is now known as EveryCord.
Colton began working as a professional computer expert in 2013, and has 7 years of experience in the field. He and a friend of over 10 years, Logan Sevcik, co-founded AppValley, LLC in March 2019. According to him, the firm was started because he was very frustrated with Apple and how they had handled their Appstore ecosystem in iOS. He wanted to create a freer way for people to get Apple-rejected applications with no fuss.
Another one of Colton's primary interests is hacking and security research.
Early life and career
Colton was born on May 3, 2001 to Laura and Ronald Adamski in Illinois, United States. From the early age of 7, he began showing a very deep interest in computers. He received his very first personal computer when he was 9 years old. He was also very active in sports, starting Tae Kwon Do lessons at the age of 6 and receiving a black belt. He also played for the football team in high school.
Colton attended Carl Sandburg High School, district 230 and started walking on the path to achieve his dreams way before he graduated. Colton is known for starting up AppValley and bringing up the PewDiePie printer hack. Colton won first place at the well-known CodeDay Chicago Hackathon in Illinois, and 3rd place at the IT Essentials Awards at Morraine Valley. He was also awarded for his artistic achievements by the Illinois Art Education Association.
One time, Colton even hacked into the school application made by a company called SuperFanU. He was able to hack into the entire database, and was able to see everything from student information to business partners, among other things.
Afterwards, Colton was hired by the company to help them fix up their bugs and tighten up their weak security system, which he did effortlessly. Colton had an interview session with Joe Tidy from BBC, which was impressive enough for “PweDiePie” to react to it in one of the YouTube videos. The reaction stemmed from the fact that he brought up a hack for one of the "PewDiePie" printers and in the YouTube video. The CEO of the company said, “If anything, these kids should be hired for doing something ground-breaking.”
Colton has never been married before. However, he has a very supportive girlfriend, Morgan, who helps him in all ways she can and who believes in his dreams.
He has written articles and has been referenced many articles under the alias "J3ws3r". All of his PewDiePie articles and kobs were one under this alias. His favorite saying is a quote by Steve Jobs, which says "Those ones who think they are crazy enough to change the world are the ones who do."
