Colby O’Donnell

Colby O'Donnell has been programming professionally since 1999. For 11 years he primarily used C++ to develop portions of several major software releases of premium ultrasound devices at Philips Healthcare and Siemens Healthcare. In 2011, Colby worked full-time at Microsoft using C# and T-SQL to add three features to an IT solution accelerator business product. In 2012, he returned to Philips to develop test automation software for the latest ultrasound devices. His passion lies in implementing simple, maintainable and testable software designs that meet customer needs.

Colby holds an M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin and B.S. degrees in physics and computer science from the University of Washington. Quick quiz, how do you pronounce UW? Careful, it depends! While enjoying the frigid temperatures of Madison, Colby taught C++ and was ribbed for saying “U-Dub."
