James Averitt's love of technology began with his first PC in elementary school. This passion for technology was fostered by graduating with a degree in Management Information Systems. He began his professional career in the peak of the first technology boom as a C++ programmer working on NCR's Advanced Checkout System.

After the bubble burst, he went to law school and aimed to focus solely on technology issues. He spent a decade practicing law solely in the technology sphere. During this time, he realized my true passion was actually using technology instead of supporting it.

James Averitt is involved in an immersive 13 week software engineering fellowship focusing on JavaScript, React/Redux on the front-end and Node and Express on the back-end. His unique and diverse background in technology, business, and law would make him an asset to many organizations.
