James David Ramsey
Raised in Cincinnati, Dave moved to Columbus for Ohio State, and never moved out of central Ohio.
He founded Workflow Data Systems, a small software development consultancy, in 1998, and remains a principal in that organization to this day. In his 24 years in tech, he’s written process automation systems, end-user business apps, mobile apps, VR games, and tools for other developers.
Five years ago, he retired to work on passion projects, including developer tools, VR and Unity game development, designing board games, and podcasting. His first board game design has been picked up by a publisher, and should hit the market with the next year or so. He has been a host of the podcasts Massively Unqualified: Development and VR Hermits.
He enjoys coding, mentoring junior developers and startups, playing games (board and video), lounging with his dog, and growing his beard.
... and attending TEDxColumbus events.
Dave has attended the previous 9 TEDxColumbus events (plus TEDxColumbusWomen once).
