Jimmy Engström



Ever since Jimmy got his first ZX Spectrum at the age of 7 he hasn't stopped programming. During the day he is an ASP.NET developer and much like Bruce Wayne/Batman he does all the fun stuff (sometimes in his cave) during his spare time.
Only difference is that he doesn't catch bad guys, just bugs. 
He is really passionate about, Windows 8 & Windows Phone development and Kinect and IoT, or well you could say the .NET platform really.

Together with his wife (who also is an MVP) he started a code intensive user group that focuses on helping participants with code and design problems. They also arrange for at least 2-5 hackathons per year.
First time he stood on a stage was at Techdays Sweden when he accepted the "geek of the year" award, a title well deserved. He is certainly living up to the title with everything from developing and gadgets to superheroes and cosplaying at the sci-fi faire.
He continued to stand on the stage at various types of events including Hackathons, Swenug and Microsoft Sommarkollo which led to him becoming a member MEET (Microsoft Extended Experts Team) and that all led up to being rewarded Microsoft MVP in Windows Platform Development.
