Casey Borders

Java Instructor, Columbus 



Prior to Tech Elevator I was...

a mobile developer (Android and iOS) working for companies ranging from 10 person startups to a Fortune 25 company.

The students at Tech Elevator...

are amazingly diverse but all have a desire to learn and become better developers.

The best part of my day is...

getting to see the students grow and learn. 

Casey has been a professional developer for over 10 years but his love of technology goes all the way back to his father teaching him QBasic at 9 years old. Throughout his career he's had the opportunity to work in a wide variety of environments from a 10 person start-up to a Fortune 25 company and everything in between. Most recently he has been focused on mobile development, leading teams targeting both Android and iOS, as well as working with and mentoring junior developers.

Casey is also a co-organizer of the Google Developer Group in Columbus where he puts on monthly meetings to help inform people of the latest technology news. For the last two years GDG Columbus has partnered with Google and Udacity to present an introduction to Android development courses.
