Coding for fun, with Jon Skeet

Making Tech Better - Made Tech

Jon Skeet‘s Twitter profile describes him as “Christian, husband (of Holly Webb, the children’s author), father, feminist, software engineer (currently at Google), author, @stackoverflow contributor. He/him.” Jon works on the Google Cloud Client Libraries for .NET, and other things like the .NET Functions Framework. Join our “Connect” mailing list.
