M. Scott Ford, who has been called the “Bob Vila of the internet”, is the Co-Founder and CTO of Corgibytes — a boutique software consultancy
specializing in modernizing and maintaining existing codebases. Scott is a polyglot developer who, at last count, is fluent in over twenty programming languages. Scott’s love of software restoration and remodeling began in college where he and his team were responsible for retrofitting the testing tools for the X-31 jet fighter. Since then, Scott has maintained a test-focused approach to his work and found the most joy in projects where an existing codebase needed to be improved. Scott is currently working on his first book Software Remodeling: A DIY Approach to Transforming Your Legacy Code.
In addition to fixing old code, Scott enjoys anime, reading sci-fi fiction and comic books and spending time with his kids. And yes, he does have a Corgi, her name is Ein, and if you recognize that reference, we might just give you a discount.
