Software Engineer @Temporal

Fitz has been helping people learn and use complex
technologies for nearly two decades. Fitz's career has traveled across
the entire software development stack, from maintaining
high-availability compute resources to writing high performance

interfaces. An axiom that Fitz brings to all of it? No technology is
too complex for people to learn. On the side, Fitz is a university
lecturer and lover of both dogs AND cats.
