Instructor Team
Jeremy Foster | Microsoft Technical Evangelist | @codefoster
Jeremy was educated in computer engineering and mathematics then gathered disparate industry experience in education, aerospace manufacturing, and insurance. With just enough - and not nearly enough - education and experience, he finally joined Microsoft with the goal of informing and inspiring software developers to write code and to “write it right.” When he is not working, he is likely spending time with his wife and son, hiking and camping, sailing, scuba diving, or working on house projects.
Michael Palermo | Microsoft Technical Evangelist | @palermo4
Michael is a Technical Evangelist with Microsoft with a passion for HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and all things Windows 8. In his years prior to joining Microsoft, Michael served as a Microsoft Regional Director, MVP, and Microsoft “insider” on a wide variety of technologies, authored several technical books and published several online courses with Pluralsight. Michael takes his evangelism seriously, and can be seen speaking at developer events around the world.
