CHUCK:  Hey everybody, and welcome to Episode 64 of the JavaScript Jabber Show. This week on our panel, we have Jamison Dance.

JAMISON:  Hello friends.

CHUCK:  Joe Eames.

JOE:  Hey there.

CHUCK:  Merrick Christensen.

MERRICK:  What’s up?

CHUCK:  I’m Charles Max Wood from DevChat.TV. And this week, we have a special guest, Ryan Florence.

RYAN:  Hey, how’s it going?

CHUCK:  So, you haven’t been on the show before. Do you want to introduce yourself?

RYAN:  Sure. Ryan Florence. I’m from Utah like a lot of you guys. I’ve been writing JavaScript for five years now or something like that. I just picked it up. I was sick of the engineers at my company telling me that things were impossible. So, I started to show them that it was possible and then ended up getting paid more money.

CHUCK:  Is that at Instructure or is that somewhere else?

RYAN:  No, that was at a company actually in Idaho.

CHUCK:  Ah, I see.

RYAN:  So now, I work at Instructure. We build a learning management system for schools and universities. We also have Canvas.net, which is open courses for anyone to take. There are some pretty interesting ones on there like gender and comic books, things like that. It’s a fun place to work, fun product to work on.

CHUCK:  Yeah, you inherited a lot of my old coworkers. I used to work for Mozy.

RYAN:  Yeah, half our engineering team used to be Mozy. But I think we have offset them at this point.
