Jeff has been a technology professional since 2000, but started young. His first programming experience started at seven years old on his Commodore64. He copied many pages of Basic code from the back of a magazine that created ‘The Last Starfighter’ game. He struggled through some syntax errors, but eventually got it to work... but instead of shooting bullets, his ship shot out the number 8. Close enough!
Jeff now enjoys helping State Farm’s development community apply Cloud Native principles in creating new & refactoring existing workloads to modern tech. Together we experiment, iterate and get the 8’s out of the way en route to learning and staying on top of dynamic cloud technologies.
