John started programming computers in the 1970s when you had to use punch cards and wait until tomorrow to get your compile finished. In the ensuing years, he moved from mainframes to PCs and was an early employee at Microsoft, working on multiple products include Visual C++ and Excel. Since joining Mobilize.Net in 2012, he's been focused on helping customers understand their options to modernize legacy software. John and his wife live on a hobby farm near Seattle, WA with three chickens and two Border Collies.
