Episode 43: Walt Ritscher

Walt's enthusiasm for crafting software interfaces blossomed early.  Just a few days after discovering how to make pixels move around the screen of a borrowed computer he was devouring books on the topic of computer graphics and UI design.  Now he travels the world speaking at software conferences and teaching a diverse portfolio of programming topics for corporate clients. On the consulting side he continues to work with customers like Microsoft, HP, Intel, and Intuit and enjoys being part of the Wintellect consultant group.He has over fifty hours of video training courses available in the WintellectNow, Lynda and Udemy catalogs.  He writes for several publications including Code Magazine and has a new "HLSL and Pixel Shaders for XAML Developer" book available from O'Reilly Media. His current UI obsession revolves around the Windows 8 Metro, Mobile, ASP.NET MVC and WPF APIs.  This year he is learning as much as he can about Xamarin. You can find his blog at xamlwonderland.com.
