Columbia, SC, USA
Chris Eargle has designed and developed enterprise applications for 15 years. He is the founder and mentor of the Columbia Enterprise Developers Guild, and he is a frequent guest of conferences and community events.
Chris is a native Carolinian; his family settled the Dutch Fork region of South Carolina in 1752. He currently resides in Columbia with his wife, Binyue, his dog, Laika, and his three cats: Meeko, Tigger, and Sookie. Amazingly, they all get along... except for Meeko, who is by no means meek.
Here are a few other phrases to describe Chris: technologist, transhumanist, and rational skeptic.
Chris is a Microsoft C# MVP, a former INETA Director, and was twice designated an INETA Community Champion. If you are passionate about software development, you are encouraged to join INETA to be connected to hundreds of groups. It is free to join, and INETA helps cover your travel expenses for speaking.
Chris' new venture is Sigma Nine, providing tools, templates, and themes for developers and designers.
