About Me


Hi, my name is Randy Burden and I live in the Dallas, Texas area with my beautiful wife and children. By trade I am a software developer and have successfully served as a Software Development Manager and technical leader on numerous teams and projects. I pride myself in being honest, transparent, always making time for others, and strive to lead by example.

I am passionate about software development and enjoy all of the challenges and rewards that come with each project I participate on. I greatly enjoy learning new concepts, methodologies, best practices, and technologies. I am an avid software development podcast listener and plain and simple can't get enough of learning new things.

I am usually always busy but I try hard to make time for my hobbies which include learning more about Jesus, playing guitar, programming, discovering new music, listening to podcasts, watching tv (I love my DVR), running, and some casual gaming.
