About Michael Carducci

For nearly 20 years, Michael was a software engineer moonlighting as a magician. Now he's a magician moonlighting as a tech leader/software engineer. In both endeavors he has dedicated himself to mastery and has gained deep insights both from his eclectic interests, entrepreneurial spirit, and experience that spans the full stack, the entire project lifecycle, and several technologies.

His time is equally divided between performing around the world, jumping out of perfectly good airplanes, and building software that doesn't suck.
