In this week’s edition of Reconnect, we are joined by none other than 15-time MVP titleholder Dave Noderer!
The South Florida software developer and community activist has been developing custom business automation software, services and applications for clients in his region since founding Computer Ways, Inc. in 1994.
Windows-based application development has been one of Dave’s main areas of focus ever since, achieving Microsoft Certified System Engineer + Internet, Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer, and Microsoft Certified Database Administrator certifications.
Always willing to expand his expertise and share knowledge with others, Dave is an active member of many technical groups and meetups in South Florida. For starters, Dave co-founded FlaDotNet in 2001 to organize in-person and online meetings for the community.
Later, Dave worked to establish the annual event of The South Florida Code Camp. More than 1500 developers have been in attendance in recent years with the February event focused on technologies like .NET, SQL, Cloud, The Internet of Things and machine learning.
Last year, meanwhile, Dave co-founded the Microsoft Cloud South Florida User Group.
“My passion is community of any kind, especially the developer community,” Dave says.
This passion is certainly evident in Dave’s extensive list of community engagements, which also includes work with Florida Azure Association, Azure Global Boot Camp, SQL Saturday and ITPalooza.
When he’s not lending a hand to the developer community, Dave is involved with the wider community as well. Dave works with Kiwanis, Deerfield Beach Historical Society, Hillsboro Lighthouse Society and the Deerfield Chamber.
