About Me

Don FitzsimmonsDon Fitzsimmons

My name is Don and I’m a software developer in Scottsdale, Arizona. Before becoming a manager of other software developers, then moving back to a technical role as a hands-on architect, I worked for 15 years as a programmer and development lead, eventually hitting the glass ceiling of solutions architect.

I’ve enjoyed a career creating things and solving problems, mostly using Microsoft technologies and the .Net platform (C#, ASP.Net, Web, Desktop and mobile), but lately, I'm deep into mobile development using Xamarin and Swift. After building a few mobile apps, I'm hooked.

When I’m not coding, I’m spending time with my family or shooting photos. Most of what I write here is about programming, the software industry and sometimes photography (huge photography nerd). Below you can find more of what I do on the interwebs:
