Shawn recently started a new podcast called Hello World that is not your typical geek talk podcast. This one lets you get to know a little of the back story behind some of the authors, speakers, and trainers that you might have seen at conferences or heard talk on other podcasts.

I was into surfing growing up in the San Diego area, then went off to the U.S. Naval Academy and had a successful first career as a Naval Officer and F-14 Radar Intercept Officer. So if you want to hear how the heck someone flying planes manages to switch careers to become a software architect who teaches other people deep topics on software technology, listen in!
