Hi. I’m Mike. I've been working on crazy software projects for 15 years—everything from weather balloons to smart rear view mirrors to EEG-based versions of Pong to gesture-based security systems. I’m one of the creators of the open source tools Unity, CMock, and Ceedling that help people unit test C code. I’m also one of the founders of Throw The Switch, an online community dedicated to making embedded software better.
I have two bachelor's degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. At the moment I’m finishing my doctorate in Computer Science with a specialty in Human Computer Interaction. Before grad school I was a professional software developer for 12 years including a stint as a vice president of a contract software firm. I've trained numerous clients in Test Driven Development techniques including a Tier 1 auto supplier and an intelligence agency of the US Government.
