My name is Jeff Benning and I have a degree in mechanical engineering and a minor in computer science. I have worked as a mechanical engineer for about five years and I commonly incorporate software development into my job in order to make my work easier. This involves automating a lot of common processes like generating CAD files and gathering data, but I also work quite a bit on robotics which is a great mix of hands-on building along with detailed programming.
I picked up Android development about four years ago and I loved it right away. It really got me excited about learning how to program and a lot of the programming I learned along the way was through Android development. I have since created several apps, one of which is on the app store, and a couple more coming soon.
