Elias Carlston has 20 years’ experience as a software engineer, from lean startups to large enterprises. Having great mentors early on showed Elias the value of sharing knowledge, and he enthusiastically embraces the opportunity to give back to the community through teaching.

Beginning his career as a data analyst for a large non-profit clinic, he soon became a full stack developer. First, at healthcare cloud services provider athenahealth, and later with car sharing pioneer Zipcar, he learned techniques and technologies from Agile to XSLT to solve business problems.

In 2011, he went freelance, building Javascript apps using Angular, Backbone, and React for clients such as Charles Schwab and Macmillan Learning. 2015 brought the new challenge of teaching programming with code school General Assembly. 2016 finds Elias teaching for DevelopIntelligence and blogging about web development.

A lifelong rock’n’roll musician, Elias began his entrepreneurial experience teaching guitar lessons. He lives in Austin, TX with his wife Amy and two goofy dogs.
