About Brett Hagman

I write software.  Sometimes it isn’t very pretty, but, in the end, I can guarantee it gets the job done.

Sometimes I design hardware.  Most times I write software for that hardware.

I’m a computer engineer who has enough fragmented knowledge about a variety of things to be considerably dangerous in anything that I do.  I hope you interpret that in the best possible way.

Please check out my projects page to see some of the damage that I have done to the world.

I’m part of the core Wiring Team, and I love to teach people about how easy it is to use electronics and the Wiring Framework (which is used in the Arduino software and boards).
