I am a lifelong geek who builds and teaches about app development in my free time. I contribute to open source projects as well on Github, and am a frequent speaker at Code Camps and developer events.
I work for Microsoft (located in Redmond, WA), and teach at an after hours app club. I enjoy working with other developers who are building passion projects.
I have been building software professionally for about 20 years. I have worked on multiple engineering team inside Microsoft, and had my own companies prior to joining in 2010.
I started learning programming to make games on my Commodore 64! Since then I have built shareware, bbs door, and a few commercial AAA game titles. These days I build and teach mobile development as a hobby.
I am working on a series of game deconstructions on YouTube if you want to watch.
I have also been very active on Stack Overflow over the years. It is an amazing community to ask and answer questions. See Jason Short Profile on Stack Overflow.
