M. Scott Ford talks with Dave Rael about making something better, the toll of harsh criticism, technical focus, and identifying needs

Leading the Corgibytes technical team is Scott, who has been called the “Bob Vila of the internet.” Scott is a polyglot developer who, at last count, is fluent in over twenty programming languages. Scott’s love of software restoration and remodeling began in college where he and his team were responsible for retrofitting the testing tools for the X-31 jet fighter. Since then, Scott has maintained a test-focused approach to his work and found the most joy in projects where an existing codebase needed to be improved. Scott is currently working on his first book Software Remodeling: A DIY Approach to Transforming Your Legacy Code.
