Consumer Dev: Iris Classon
Iris Classon is a software developer and cloud architect at Konstrukt. She’s also a Microsoft C# MVP and member of Microsoft Extended Experts Team (MEET). Iris began her career as a licensed and registered clinical dietician until discovering a tremendous passion for programming. She combined the two skill sets when working on apps for Microsoft Band.
Since becoming a developer, Iris has written two books on programming for Windows and is working on a third. She’s very engaged in the developer community and hosts the "Get Up and Code" podcast. Iris is fascinated with finding alternative input methods—that is, ways of communicating with an application beyond just pushing buttons.
As a Build MC, she can speak to developers with all ranges of experiences—from newbies to experts. Having started programming later than most and after being doubted by some, she hopes to encourage other developers and let them know it’s never too late to learn.
