It's me!

Hi there. I'm Scott.
I'm a software consultant.

I provide:

Custom technical training

Whether focused on React.js, Node.js, JavaScript, or something else, any training will be targeted to your team and circumstances. My curriculum and class materials create the space for struggle , that time when students really learn.

Software development++

I've been told that I'm very fast. But I think I provide more value when I fix the really tough bugs, help to define/refine requirements, optimize architecture and test strategy, improve/develop infrastructure, and mob/pair program with or mentor your full-time developers.

I bring depth and breadth:

I started out as a web developer at Hewlett-Packard in August 1998, and since then I have written both server and client code in many languages. I bring a wide perspective from my varied undertakings: feature design and project management at Microsoft, interviewing customers at the Nordstrom Innovation Lab, running a company at LIFFFT, designing technical training for the Social Security Administration, and speaking at conferences and meetups. I have always done everything with a goal of excellence: I was Summa Cum Laude in Computer Science at Cal Poly, and ranked first in my high school class.
"Scott's value-add is beyond mere lines of code: he makes products better, both through superior engineering and contributions that significantly improve the user experience. The fact that he does all this with poise, expertise and at high velocity is astounding." Read More ยป
