Who Am I?
My name is Scott Robertson, an Eagle Scout from North Las Vegas, NV. I have over 20 years experience as a freelance technical consultant. I know a number of programming languages and other technologies. I am an easy going, laid back, loyal kind of guy.
When I was in the forth grade my parents bought a Apple II E computer. I spent a lot of time on it and even started programming by copying scripts out of magazines to see what they did.
In the fifth or sixth grade I begged my teacher to let me set up the new computer. Eventually she let me. Not only did I do it correctly on the first try without opening a manual, I also knew the printer cable was missing. From that day on, she would "loan" me to other teachers who needed technical help.
When I started college, I had no idea what I wanted to do, but after taking my first computer class everything fell into place. A friend showed me an HTML book he checked out of the college library. Three months later, I had mastered HTML and started creating the first version of InsaneScouter.org.
While in college, I started tutoring computer science, working in the computer lab, and found my first few clients. This lead me into a wide range of projects and experiences including co-owning my own, investor-funded tech startup. Over the years I have worked on a wide range of projects with many successes and grand failures.
