Hey-o, I’m Steve Tannock. I’m a former developer-entrepreneur (I ran Pencilneck Software for 13 year, successfully sold that in 2016). We specialized in in other’s gone-wrong projects, or writing the version 2 of existing software for a variety of companies. Like most early-aughts cos, we built our own CMS and sold that too. We also help build and sell a trio of spin-off companies along the way.
These days I’m the head of platform for Telus Digital, Canadian Telco. I’m a manager by title, and support the Developer Experience team for telus digital. We’re building a new generation of developer tools for all of telus - from app templates, to pipeline tooling, to publishing experience and GUI control planes.
I’m deeply interested in helping to give back what I can to the awesome canadian tech company - listening to your ideas, and happy to have convos on what selling to, or working with enterprise orgs like Telus can be like. Overall, I think a lot about how to improve the developer experience - not just here at telus, but everywhere - across social dynamics, tech tooling, practices, etc.
Always happy to have a coffee-chat about what you’re working on, and help if I can.
