Freelance Software architect, speaker, blogger, guitarist. I am a Microsoft MVP
, so I get to fly around the country and see cool places and teach and learn from really smart, great people. I architect systems and write software for a living. I have worked at Amentra, a part of Red Hat, and on websites for Discovery Channel, AOL, the National Academies, and more. You can schedule me
to talk about how to make your site or product awesome, too. I write about software and making development teams work better together at ryanhayes.net
. I speak at technical user groups
. I play guitar at my church
. I've played guitar with Calling All Cars all around the East Coast, including Six Flags over Georgia. I prefer milk and juice to Coke. I like egg and cheese bagels.
