Alan Hartless (he/him)
Husband, Father, and Software Engineering Leader in Houston, Texas
Howdy! I'm Alan, a native Virginian who moved to Houston, Texas in '07. I love to help people and I love technology. I started my career as a registered nurse while learning to code PHP as a hobby. After 7 years in nursing, I somehow found myself a founding engineer of Mautic, the first open-source marketing automation software. We released 1.0.0 in 2015 and were acquired by Acquia in 2019.
I'm currently serving as a software engineering manager at Panorama Education whose mission is to “radically improve education for every student.”
In my free time, I'm focused on my husband, two kids, and two cats with a little bit of free time in between to read or listen to books, write code, and play Minecraft or the Oculus.
