Chris is passionate about keeping up with new technologies that matter to today's working coders. He is a frequent contributor of labs and presentations to the Philly.NET Developers Meetup and part of the Static Void Podcast (www.staticvoidpodcast.com). He also streams software development live on Mixer (http://bit.ly/spaceshotonmixer) for you to watch and ask questions live. Today, Chris is focusing on the future of ASP.NET in the .NET Core stack and investigating both the enterprise tools we all know (such as Visual Studio) and new techniques and tools that are new to the Microsoft community (Linux, functional programming, and platform-as-a-service cloud features). Chris also is a co-founder of Philly GameWorks, a game developers group devoted to helping anyone make their first game. Making your own games is a driver for many young people to enter to software field and there has never been a better time to learn how to get started.
