Master Software Engineer at Parametric Portfolio Associates in Seattle, Chris McKenzie has dedicated his career to the pursuit of technical excellence. With seventeen years of experience writing software, he now functions in the role of trainer and mentor for others, leading an internship program that Parametric uses to funnel gifted beginners into the software development department. His particular interest is in finding the "success spot" with whichever technology stack is being used so that it's faster and easier to do the right thing than the wrong thing. He maintains a blog at http://www.iextendable.com where he discusses whatever is on his mind at the moment. He can also be found on Twitter @ISuperGeek.
