I’m Mike Tefft, host of Develop North.  I’m hoping that Develop North will document my struggles as the single IT Application guy at my day job and my struggles to become a Software Developer with my own software business.  I hope to entertain and learn something in the process.

Mike graduated (too many years ago) from Clarkson University with a B.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering.  Mike has worked for two Fortune 500 companies (who shall remain nameless), as well as working four years full time as an independent contractor/software developer.  Mike is President of Cynosure Software LLC and is currently working on a rewrite of his company’s major product.

In what little spare time he has, Mike likes to play trumpet in various local music organizations, theatre (acting and watching), hockey (college: Let’s Go Tech! and pro: Let’s Go Rangers!), reading, writing, and to complete the geek stereotype, Dungeons & Dragons.  I love new gadgets, but tend to be too cheap to purchase them immediately.  I think I still have every computer I’ve ever owned and some of them (like my 13 year old Dell) still get pressed into use now and again.
