Shortly after it arrived at his home in 1993, Jordan began disassembling his first computer – his mother was not happy. She breathed more easily when he moved from hardware into programming. Jordan’s experience includes development, instruction, and mentorship at startups, agencies, Fortune 100 companies, universities, the Federal Government, as well as numerous open source projects. He speaks regularly at (and helps organize) local user groups and conferences big and small. Jordan’s primary mission for over 15 years has been to evangelize technology of all sorts and share what he has learned to help others grow. As a member of the United States, Digital Service Jordan currently works on helping transform technology at the Department of Defense. In his downtime, he enjoys puzzles of all sorts and board games!
I am the lead on the Code.mil project and work closely with the (related) Code.gov team under GSA. I speak regularly on this topic with members of the DoD and across the government, and more and more across the developer community. We want to get the American people involved in this effort and foster a more open government.
