Tech Evangelist at Amazon
Greg Bulmash started in tech by publishing jokes and humorous essays to his own web site, eventually rising to become Senior Editor of the Internet Movie Database (IMDb.com). In 2005, he dusted off his BASIC programming skills from the 80s, taught himself some of the programming languages that power the web, and pivoted into a career writing code and communicating with developer audiences. He currently works as a Technical Evangelist for Login with Amazon, and in his spare time he runs Seattle CoderDojo, a volunteer group where local tech professionals help kids learn computer programming. He's spoken at OSCON, CascadiaJS, DevNexus, Developer Week, CodeMotion Amsterdam, and other meetups and conferences about web development, programming, and teaching kids how to code.
