Hi! My name is Levi Rosol and I lead a double life. By day I am a .Net consultant, and by night I am a co-founder of www.ScoreYard.com.

That makes for a good introduction I think. But there’s more if you care to read on. If not, here’s my email:

What I’ve Done and What I Do

I am a self taught developer. I do not have a degree (aka: massive debt), and I’m very OK with that.

For the last 10 years I have work primarily with Microsoft technologies. I started in a very entry level position with a large tel-co and worked my way into a corporate developer role relatively quickly. We built massive internal applications for a relatively small number of users. This did let me do a lot of traveling, and allowed me to live in 3 very nice cities (Albuquerque, Phoenix and Denver). Then tel-co went bankrupt, and I was laid off.

Again, I’m very OK with that as it brought be back to Iowa. When I got back to Iowa I started working for a small marketing company in Des Moines. This proved to be invaluable. I was continuing with my developer passion, but now I was learning the skills needed to take a problem and define a solution for it. Basically, this fed and grew the entrepreneurial desire in me that honestly, at the time, I didn’t know I had.

Unfortunately the economy in took a dump in 2008 and it impacted a lot of our clients. I was laid off. Yep, you guessed it. I was very OK with that.

Now I maintain a 8-5'er as a .Net consultant by day, and I am a co-founder of www.ScoreYard.com by night. ScoreYard is a social hub for sports teams, helping teams connect with fans. In an odd technical twist considering my background, ScoreYard is a Ruby on Rails application. It’s my first non Microsoft based application, and I’m loving it.

I am also the President of the Iowa .Net User Group, and I am one of the leaders of the Iowa Code Camp. If your company is interested in getting in front of over 1000 professional developers in Iowa, I suggest you get a hold of me ASAP.
