We're excited to invite you to visit us at the Craft Lake City DIY Fest this Friday, August 12, for a mind-blowing panel: "The Intersection of Art and Tech" by V School.

Ben Turner Senior Software Engineer at Skedulo

Ben graduated from the University of Utah in 2014 with a degree in philosophy. As a former welder and touring musician, he decided to go for a major career switch and learn how to code.
