Michael Eaton has been a software developer since the early 90's, but left the so-called security of a ""real job"" for the freedom and flexibility of independence in 2001. He lived the life of independence for 14 years, but at the end of 2014, he started working at Quicken Loans as a Senior Software Engineer.
Michael speaks throughout the United States at various regional events, user groups and conferences sharing his love of client development to other developers. Michael runs the Kalamazoo X Conference and is a former C# MVP (2009-2015). When not working on projects or spending time with his family, he will most likely be found reading, playing his Xbox or honing his marksmanship skills on the pistol range.
