Besides being your host for the AppxFest event, I am a Developer Evangelist at Microsoft. I was educated in computer engineering and mathematics, gathered disparate industry experience in education, aerospace manufacturing, and insurance. With just enough and not nearly enough education and experience, I finally joined Microsoft with the goal of informing and inspiring other software developers to write code and write it right. When I’m not working, I’m likely spending time with my wife and son, hiking and camping, sailing, scuba diving, or working on house projects. Find me online at @codefoster and
