• Aaron Burke

    Software Engineer, Architect, Coder

Professional

.NET developer with over 15 years experience in the Microsoft Stack. Very strong skills in ASP.NET, IIS, SQL, MVC, WebAPI, Azure and Xamarin. Sitecore certified. Strong interpersonal skills, solid leadership qualities, and enjoys working with peers. Excellent communication skills, especially when working with clients and training developers.

I enjoy everything from designing complex systems and integrations, to being deep in the weeds coding, to working on outside projects to keep my skills sharp.

Personal

Even when I'm not "working," you can find me helping people with their websites or spending countless hours on web and mobile based pet projects.

Outside of the coding/tech world, I enjoy photography, camping, and am a (semi) professional pinball player. This year I will be competing in the Ohio State finals, as well as a few national tournaments. You can find me year-round firing up the smoker or grill, making delicious food for good people. I've catered barbeques for up to 150 people in the past, and have been told my bacon-wrapped filet mignon stuffed with crab is "stupid".
