I'm a software geek, working at Google, making Android graphics and animation more excellent. In previous lives I've worked at Sun on the JDK, at Adobe on Flex, and various other places in Silicon Valley, always working on graphics software.
In my copious spare time, I write. I write humor on my blog Enough About You...
along with my G+ stream at google.com/+ChetHaase
and on Twitter via @chethaase. I also occasionally post technical articles on CodeDependent
. I co-wrote the book Filthy Rich Clients
with Romain Guy, wrote another programming book Flex 4 Fun
about Flex graphics and animation, and wrote humor books Round and Holy
, When I am King....
and the long-anticipated sequel, When I am King... II
. Like women and childbirth, I eventually forget the pain of the process of writing a book, and will probably make the mistake of writing another one eventually. As soon as the scars from the last one heal.
I also have developed a strange and disturbing attraction to the microphone. Any microphone. You may find me giving a technical talk at a developer conference or user group, or doing some standup or improv in a comedy show. I've also been seen in videos ("You may know me from such hits as DevBytes..."), either work-related or posted on my comedy blog and YouTube channel
None of what I write in my blogs, on Google+, or anywhere else has anything to do with my employer; they're just my thoughts, my jokes, my mistakes.
