About Me

Who am I?

My name is Scott Goci, and I am a 34 year old web developer located in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I have a huge love of entrepreneurship and have launched or helped build dozens of startups to date. I also contribute back to the tech community with both free services (like HealthInspection.info) and open source projects (Foundation Mobile, GradeCraft, Kandan, and Rollback on Checkout, to name a few).

I am active in the Ann Arbor startup community, including being the co-organizer of Ann Arbor New Tech Meetup, along with running Ann Arbor Coffee House Coders. I also put on the first Hackathon in Ann Arbor, Hacka2thon.

In my spare time I like to do standup comedy, go camping, travel, snowboard, play video games, and read books about new programming languages and trends.

Take a look below to checkout the many startups, hackathons, side projects, and more that I've created, developed, and worked on as a web developer in the past few years.
