Nick Hodges is the Developer Advocate for Rollbar and has been in love with code since he wrote crude text-based adventure games in BASIC using paper tape and a TTY Model 33. Nick really got going with software development when he picked up a copy of Turbo Pascal for Windows and followed that on with Delphi. Currently Nick is interested in Typescript and Angular development. Nick has a BA in Classical Languages from Carleton College and an MS in Information Technology Management from the Naval Postgraduate School. In his career he has been a busboy, a cook, a caddie, a telemarketer (for which he apologizes), an Office Manager, a high school teacher, a Naval Intelligence officer, a software developer, a product manager, and a software development manager. He's a passionate Minnesota sports fan -- especially the Timberwolves -- as he grew up and went to college in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. He currrently lives in West Chester, PA.
