Mike Wales

USAF Veteran

The lack of formal education in web development did him no disservice in landing top-tier jobs. From 2003 to 2009, Michael was employed by the United States Air Force as a Computer Systems Administrator NCO. He developed everything from client systems and network infrastructure for the Joint Space Operations Center. He was also the sole system and network technician for five General Officers within the Joint Functional Component Command for Space and the 14th Air Force, addressing all software, hardware, and infrastructure issues across all network classification levels.

Following his time in the Air Force, Michael continued to hone his skills as a web developer with time in government intelligence at General Dynamics Information Technology and Kforce Government Solutions, developing a variety of impressive web applications using everything from JavaScript and jQuery to AngularJS, PHP, and MySQL. April 2014 brought him to Udacity, where he´s in charge of managing the company´s entire web development curriculum, planning, developing, and ensuring technical accuracy of all of Udacity´s web development courses and Nanodegree programs. His decade-plus of experience in web development has put him in a place where he can use his well-earned skills to impart the same passion he has for the field to his students.
