Barry Stahl talks with Dave Rael about coding for charity, family, optimizing your efforts, models, cognitive biases, and charitable interpretation

Barry is a .NET Software Engineer who has been creating business solutions for enterprise customers for more than 30 years. Barry is also an Election Integrity Activist, baseball and hockey fan, husband of one genius and father of another, and a 30+ year resident of Phoenix Arizona. When Barry is not traveling around the world to speak at Conferences, Code Camps and User Groups or to participate in GiveCamp events, he spends his days consulting as a Solution Architect and Developer and his nights thinking about the next AZGiveCamp, an annual event where software developers come together to build websites and apps for some great non-profit organizations.

Barry's top 3 tips for delivering more value:
  1. Make sure you exercise your brain
  2. If you're not testing something, ask why
  3. Always assume the output of others comes from a good place
