Writing about yourself is awkward. Let me do it so you don't have to.

Robby Russell

Planet Argon

If you’ve got a business, Robby wants to know how it works. Nothing makes him more excited than helping you be more efficient. It’s something he geeks out on at Planet Argon, after all, as the one focused on sales, marketing, driving company culture, and building relationships with clients. An idea generator who’s focused on the end goal, Robby’s always asking, "How does this help our customers’ customers?"

Thinking about tech’s practical uses is something Robby’s been obsessed with ever since he was a teen in Gilroy, California. After dropping out of high school with zero intention of ever working in computers, he taught himself how to program so he could get his music zine online and also sell punk band and political activist stickers.

Gary Blessington

Planet Argon

Gary’s road to fully fledged geekdom began when he got his first computer at 13-years-old. As a teenager growing up in Liverpool, England, Gary would try and figure out how the computer worked when he wasn’t playing every 8bit game imaginable.

He accidentally landed in tech by doing operations support for a lottery company right out of high school. After a few years in the real world, he went to university to study computer science and eventually became a professional programmer. 

Craig Dennis Treehouse Think you can't? Yes, you can.  I'm a software teacher, backend developer, and self-taught polyglot who thrives in the deep ends and loves doing what people say I can't. Throughout my life, whether figuring out how to escape grues on Zork, automating PC installations, or creating site generation tools to empower admins, I've always subscribed to the growth mindset. I encourage this philosophy with my students. I want them to know they're not alone in their learning journey, and that coding is fun. I use my weird acting background (not to brag, but I played Peter Pan in high school) to teach in a style that's empathetic and engaging. Anyone who knows me will tell you that I make at least two dad jokes per hour. That's just how eye roll.
