Rob Hedgpeth is the Director of Developer Relations for MariaDB Corporation. He has been writing code since the early 2000's. Like many others, he started his journey by building pretty horrendous looking websites. Fortunately, for the world, he has since evolved and has branched out to a variety of projects across web, desktop, mobile, and IoT. Throughout the years he has contributed to the architecture and development of many apps using a large array of languages and technologies. Now as a developer evangelist for MariaDB Corporation, Rob gets to combine his love for technology with his mission to fuel developers' curiosity and passion.
