Hello, I am Chris McAvoy.

I build software development teams in Boulder, Colorado. I work at Cognizant, as the head of engineering at the Cognizant Accelerator. I live in Boulder with my wife, son and two cats. We moved here from Chicago in April 2015.

I'm a long time supporter of Open Source communities. In 2002, I started the Chicago Python Users Group (ChiPy) and am currently an organizer of the Boulder Javascript Meetup. I've worked in e-commerce, consulting, startups, big companies and was a improv comedian for ten years. I like computers, people and cats.

Thanks to Jeremy Thomas for his article, Web Design in Four Minutes , which heavily influenced this page.
