Fred Jean

I take bits from bucket a, twiddle them a little and put them in bucket b. Sometimes, I put them back in bucket a.

Adding 17 years of IT experience to the dojo, Fred's held positions at IBM, Sun, and Time Warner Cable. He landed in Colorado in April of 1998 (in the midst of a spring snowstorm), trading in his view of the St. Lawrence River for one of Boulder's Flatirons. He's been here ever since.

What Fred enjoys about web application development is taking "a vague, barely defined idea and turning it into a product that has an impact on people's lives."

A true Canadian, Fred politely tolerates Steve's Quebec jokes, but he doesn't offer him any maple bacon donuts.
