Bob Davidson

Developer
“I had weird aspirations of becoming a writer. I’m over it now.”

From childhood, it seemed as though Bob was destined to work in tech. His grandparents owned a Dragon 64. His first computer experience was editing the verbiage in Gold Digger to say something, shall we say, a bit more chiding than the programmers originally intended. His first computer, a Toshiba laptop with 1 MB of RAM that ran Windows 3.1, was stuck at half speed because turbo mode didn’t work.

Now, as a .NET developer he solves problems all day. The mish-mash of technologies creates interesting hurdles. The hurdles lead to complex problem solving. And complex problem solving is what makes Bob tick.

Bob’s guilty pleasure is still in those video games — though maybe without the language-changing mods — but his main hobbies have shifted toward more physical tinkering: DIY auto mechanics, cooking, photography. There’s even an induction cooktop in the Blend kitchen with his name on it.

Still, most of the tinkering happens here at Blend. Good thing, too — there are still plenty of opportunities to jump over hurdles and solve complex problems.
