Hello, I'm Ryan Carson. Entrepreneur & Founder.

I've been a founder, entrepreneur, and CEO for 20 years, successfully building, scaling, and selling three startups. I'm passionate about empowering people to become developers and then connecting them together in a global community.

After earning a degree in Computer Science in Colorado, I moved to the UK and worked as a web developer. I then organized global tech conferences, hosting thousands of attendees and influential speakers such as Mark Zuckerberg, the founders of Android, Instagram, and Twitter, among others. My company also produced Twitter's and Stack Overflow's developer conferences.

Following that, I started an online Computer Science school. Under my leadership, the team grew to over 100 employees, educating more than 1,000,000 students. During this period, I secured $23 million in venture capital and earned recognition as Entrepreneur of the Year.

Over the last two years I dove deep into AI and LLMs and built an AI sales coach called Maple. The platform was built using technologies like Next.js, TypeScript, gpt-4, and Vercel.

Outside of work, I share my life with my wife of 20+ years and my two teenagers in Connecticut. I enjoy spending my free time sailing and taking walks with our Sheltie, Brinkley.
