Andy Mehalick

Hi I'm Andy — founder and managing director Orange Jetpack, I'm currently living and working in beautiful sunny Kuwait. I am a Microsoft Certified Professional Developer and a recent Master of Software Engineering graduate from Pennsylvania State University.

I have a passion for the elegance inherent in well-designed software solutions and the beauty that exists in the software we create. I enjoy working with and evangelizing all of the technologies and patterns that create harmony in my software development life and I enjoy sharing my experiences of discovery with others.

Currently I build cloud-based web and mobile applications of all scale with the ASP.NET Core, Entity Framework, SQL Azure, Cosmos DB, Redis, Service Bus, Angular, React, and Ionic.
