We are Greater Sum
Principal Software Craftsman, Learning Coach and Co-founder
A husband, father of four, and currently the Principal Software Craftsman, Learning Coach and Co-founder of Greater Sum, Mike believes we work best when we are working together and that there are no best practices—only better and worse ones depending on the context. Passionate about raising the bar of technical excellence in the software development community, Mike is a founder and organizer of Software Craftsmanship Atlanta, a founding member of the Utah Software Craftsmanship group and a former organizer of the Agile Roots conference. He has worked at several companies including Pluralsight, Ancestry.com, Microsoft, and Caselle.
Peter has been a builder of things for a long time. His professional experience building things began with building hotrods in a restoration shop. This led to a career working on cars as a painter and automotive technician. This grew into operations management and now Peter brings his analytical skills and team building experience to the web development arena. Having early experience with apprenticeship roles, Peter sees tremendous value in the application of craftsmanship to the practice of computer programming.

Currently, his favorite programming activity is solving algorithms on ProjectEuler.net. He spends his free time playing for the Atlanta professional ultimate team.
After careers in construction, laboratory technology and as a support analyst Mark was looking for a career where he could use his love of learning, problem solving and building. All these things make his passion for software development a natural fit. After taking a leap and attending The Iron Yard Academy front end developer program he was hooked by coding/software developing. Always looking for ways to grow as a developer he has had freelance jobs to internships. Mark is excited at being a software apprentice at Greater Sum because of the opportunity it presents to become a true professional in software development.
