Al SargentSan Francisco
I love software. Started coding at age 10. At 12, wrote my first game. At 13, got sent to the principal's office for skipping class to code.
Decades later I feel fortunate to be working in the field I love, that's shaped our modern world, and where I've had some level of impact.
Such as helping to create the world's first software-testing cloud, Sauce Labs; drive the fastest-growing business unit at VMware; advance market-changing open source technologies such as Spring and Cloud Foundry; and build a category -- Software Analytics -- at New Relic.
I love the craft of technical storytelling: bridging the gap between engineering, marketing, and sales. Crafting compelling stories that are resonant yet grounded in reality. And building teams of like-minded professionals.
