My studies in Computer Engineering and Mathematics got me started on a career course in software development. Subsequent job roles - helping build airplanes, teaching high school students to code, and more - gained me experience and fueled my passion for not only writing code but also talking about writing code.
Now I work at Microsoft and beyond the obvious goal of writing great software, I also hope to inform and inspire others.
I work mostly with open source technologies, the web stack, IoT, and Microsoft Azure.
I have authored one book, countless online videos, and am always trying to keep up with online audiences at codefoster.com and on Twitter at @codefoster.
When I'm not working, I'm usually working on maker projects, spending time with my wife and two boys in the Pacific Northwest, hiking and camping, sailing, scuba diving, riding my motorcycle, or working on house projects.@codefoster
