Patrick Childers, CTO View Patrick Childers' profile on LinkedIn

Patrick is one of the two founding principals of Zimmdot. As CTO, he oversees the development of new technologies and innovations. Patrick’s passion for programming exploded after reading, in only six days,Teach Yourself Perl 5 in 21 Days. A proven entrepreneur, Patrick has been one of the founding principals for Quadserve Communications and now Zimmdot. Between starting successful businesses, he has worked the slots (at RealTime Gaming), the racetracks (at Rainbow Studios, THQ), and the weather forecast (for The Weather Channel).

Ryan Droege, Programming

As part of our inaugrual Summer Internship Program, Ryan jumped on board with the team in May of 2012. He won our respect with his superior coding skills, our esteem for fixing the company Pinball machine, and the competition for most hours logged during Crunch Week. Outside the office, there is even more to admire about this guy. Ryan started a nonprofit with a couple friends that raise money for microloans to individuals who need a hand up.
