Jamie Dixon

Jamie Dixon has been writing code for as long as he can remember and has been getting paid to do it since 1995. He was using C# and JavaScript almost exclusively until discovering F# and now combines all three languages for the problem at hand. He has a passion for discovering overlooked gems in data sets and merging software engineering techniques to scientific computing. When he codes for fun, he spends his time using the .NET Micro framework with Netduinos, Raspberry Pi2s, and the Kinect.

Jamie has a BSCS in Computer Science and has been a MCSD since 2001. He is the Chair of his town's Information Services Advisory Board and is an outspoken advocate for Open Data. He also is involved with his local .NET User Group (TRINUG) with an emphasis on data analytics, machine learning, and the internet of things (IoT).

Jamie's most recent failures is getting voted off of tech-ed idol for saying that end users are stupid, destroying several hundred dollars of robotic equipment in an ill-advised experiment involving lawnmowers, and finishing in the bottom 25% of a high-stakes Kaggle competition

Jamie lives in Cary, North Carolina with his wonderful wife Jill and their three awesome children: Sonoma, Sawyer, and Sloan. He blogs weekly at jamessdixon.wordpress.com and can be found on Twitter.
