Ian Dees

Ian Dees was first bitten by the programming bug in 1986 on a Timex Sinclair 1000, and has been having a blast in his software apprenticeship ever since.

Since escaping Rice University in 1996 with engineering and German degrees, he has debugged assembler with an oscilloscope, written web applications nestled comfortably in high-level frameworks, and seen everything in between. He currently hacks C++ application code, automates laboratory hardware, and yes, writes user interface test scripts for a test equipment manufacturer near Portland, Oregon.

When he's not coding for work or for friends, you're most likely to find Ian chasing his family around on bicycles, plinking away at his guitar, or puzzling at the knobs on the espresso machine while some impromptu meal simmers on the stove nearby.
