The impact of Sean’s high quality work can be felt in newsrooms all over the world, around the clock — keeping a mission-critical system that’s interconnected with hundreds of other systems running smoothly. This work in turn keeps shows on the air for billions of television viewers worldwide. That would be impressive enough if it weren’t for the fact that in addition to writing good code, and picking up additional skills needed along the way, Sean’s got an excellent sense for how people use the technology he’s working on. He’s someone who can be as comfortable pounding out code in isolation as he can be explaining complex concepts to a room of tech novices in terms they understand. This combination of skillsets gives Sean a competitive edge, and should continue to do so throughout his career. It’s a pleasure to know him and work with him.
