Stacy Tyler Young

Stacy Tyler Young is a senior computer scientist for Adobe Systems in Ottawa, Canada. He's been at the forefront of web technologies since the early nineties. His passion for computing goes back further to the days of the Apple II and the first Macintosh. Rudimentary software development began at the age of seven when he was introduced to the Logo programming language. "FD 60 RT 45" anyone?

Coming from a server-side development background, Stacy dove into Flex prior to its first release and has now expanded into developing solutions built on the AIR platform. His focus today lies in Interaction Design and how it can be applied to emerging technologies like AIR to help improve the user experience.

In addition to hearing him speak at local BarCamps or development conferences, you can catch him discussing a mixed bag of technology, environmental issues, and tinfoil hats on his blog: http://stacyyoung.org.
