I'm Karl Beecher, a scientist and programmer who became an author to make science and technology more accessible for everyone. AMA!
I was a computer scientist and a software developer for over ten years. A couple of years ago, I made the transition to becoming an author.
I write about a variety of things, but my main interests are science and technology, in particular computing. I get my kicks by looking at well-worn issues from a new angle, or by making people enthusiastic about topics they might never before have considered.
I also consider it important to make topics enjoyable to learn and accessible to anyone.
I've already published several books:
You can find out more about them (and other things I've written) on my website, karlbeecher.com.
I've worked at software companies both large (50,000+ people) and small (less than 10 people). I even co-founded my own IT company in 2013.
In 2009, I got a PhD in computer science studying open source software and software evolution.
I was born and raised in the UK, but I now reside in Germany.
