Syntax Conference 2017 Speaker Spotlight - Bobby Earl

Bobby Earl – Speaker Spotlight

Bobby Earl is the guy next door, who immediately makes you feel comfortable.  He’s witty, easy to talk to, and above all, doesn’t take himself too seriously.  That said, don’t let his ‘aw shucks’ demeanor fool you, he is a formally trained full stack engineer with over 15 years of hands on experience in his chosen field.  He is a man who thrives on challenges – technical or otherwise, and is a problem solver of the first water.

Bobby holds a Computer Science degree from Winthrop University, and is one of those rare birds that enjoy his profession so much that he never really feels like he’s working. In his spare time, he occasionally blogs about the technical challenges he encounters; and maintains a traffic site that he indicates can be ‘mildly useful for those living in Charleston’. Bobby indicates that when it’s all said and done, that being a husband to his wife Ashley, and father to their three (soon to be four) children, has been the most rewarding and challenging experience of his life.

Bobby Earl currently serves as a Staff Software Engineer at Blackbaud, where he concentrates on front-end projects such as Stache, SKY UX v1, and SKY UX v2.
