      Brett Romero

      I'm a software engineer and entrepreneur. I've also started several businesses. Bitesize Business School is the latest, where I write about applying business principles to the real world and solving technology issues that every online business faces. The first business I created, Cygen, was a web design consulting business. From this business, I also created my first product - A chatroom web application that was javascript based. I've written desktop applications in languages running from Delphi to C# winforms/WPF. I've also built ASP.NET webforms and MVC based applications. When the iOS SDK was first introduced, I bought a Macbook and began building apps for the iPhone. I currently have seven apps in the iTunes App Store. I have an MBA from ASU ('14). My undergraduate major was in mathematics. Before graduating, I decided to get a business degree. I continued taking mathematics courses at the University of Washington after completing my undergraduate degree.
