Cale Dunlap

Fifteen years of full stack web and video game development experience.

I've been fascinated with computing since I was a kid. I taught myself BASIC on Apple 2e's in elementary school. I started writing C++ in high school, developing mods and video games of my own and with others around the world. That same desire to learn has never left and the world of computing gets more fascinating seemingly every day. I am passionate about learning, improving, and sharing with others what I've discovered through experience, education, and self-teaching. I'm an experienced software engineer that's worked professionally in video game, defense, travel, financial, and creative agency businesses. I'd love to bring that passion and experience to an organization of any size! Please reach out if you're interested in an interview, my contact information is below.
