Waylon Martinez

Waylon

Physical strength will get you to the start line. Mental strength will get you to the finish line.

Waylon didn’t start writing code in the traditional sense. He spent weekends picking up freelance work off Craigslist as a way to make some extra cash. He’s since turned that “thing I loved but never thought I could make into a career”...into a career. His passion for code is infectious: Have a one-hour conversation with him on any programming topic, and you’ll see why. Hailing from Texas, Waylon is an outdoorsmen. He fishes, hunts, camps, and kayaks somewhere in between coaching his son’s soccer team. He also smokes a mean pulled pork.
