Today on the podcast we’ve go Jay Harris. I met jay a few years back at a conference. I’ve heard Jay speak several times and thought he would be a good guest for the show and he did not disappoint. He came with good topics and the ideas of celebrating our own expertise as a well to improve overall mental health and confidence in our own abilities. This is a must listen to show for sure.
Jay is a code wrangler, software consultant, and owner of Arana Software
. He has been developing on the web since 1995, when the Blink tag lured him away from Visual Basic 3, and has been awarded as a Microsoft Regional Director, ASPInsider, and Microsoft MVP. Recognizing that the greatest application performance bottleneck is a developer’s time, Jay’s continuing quest is for frameworks, modules, tools, and practices that make developers stronger, fitter, happier, and more productive.
Today we talked about:
- Jay’s Origin Story in Tech

- Don’t be afraid to say that you’re an expert
- What are you an expert in?
- Mental health days
- Enable your employees to take a day
