Andy Frievalt talks with Dave Rael about career, JavaScript, open source, asking for permission, speaking, and delivering

Andy Frievalt is a senior software engineer at Northwestern Mutual, a fortune 100 financial services company in Milwaukee WI. Andy is a customer focused enterprise developer with over 25 years of experience. Despite his years in the trenches, he is still passionate about his craft and loves improving himself and those around him. Andy created Firefight JS, a library that allows you to connect real-time data to HTML without any code. When not geeking out at work, he drives his non-geek wife, Farrah, nuts with his ever changing obsessions from bitcoin and the latest diet phenomenon, to self-improvement pursuits and gaming. As a bike riding enthusiast and devoted father to Luke (5) and Cora (2), he enjoys taking them for bike rides around the scenic city they call home.

Andy's top 3 tips for delivering more value:
  1. If something is difficult, schedule it early
  2. Say "I don't know" a lot more
  3. Be a mentor
