K. Scott Allen talks with Dave Rael about software and education, the joys of technology, learning and teaching, and finding balance

Scott Allen has worked on everything from 8-bit embedded devices to large scale web sites during his 15+ years in commercial software development. Since 2001, Scott has focused on server-side and web technologies, like ASP.NET, ASP.NET AJAX, Windows Workflow, Silverlight, and LINQ. Scott is also a speaker at national conferences like VSLive!, as well as code camps and user groups near his hometown of Hagerstown, MD. Scott has been recognized as a Microsoft MVP since 2005, and has written or co-authored several books on Microsoft technologies. Scott founded the site OdeToCode.com in 2004, and joined Pluralsight in 2007.

Scott's top 3 tips for delivering more value:
  1. Put yourself in the position of the person using your output (If you had to use this, would you be happy with it?)
  2. Get feedback from the person receiving your output (ship it)
  3. Find balance
