It was the same as most careers, fixing web pages and batch jobs. After that, he moved into insurance for a year writing a rating engine to give ra... moretes for insurance. Next, he moved into consulting for ~6 years doing everything from mobile, web, services, cloud, in-house, offshore, sales, etc. Now he can consult on projects independently and make videos for Pluralsight!
