Brandon Dewitt and MX Engineering are the cover story of Software Executive magazine's April/May issue, where Brandon discusses building a software organization that doesn’t frustrate engineers.
American Banker editor Penny Crosman’s feature story “How some banks, fintechs are tackling the tech-talent shortage” tells the personal story of former MX intern Abdullah Kareem and how he met our own Marcos Minond and Ryan Moore -- volunteer coding teachers at the Utah Refugee Center.

One of our MX senior engineers, Ryan Moore, will be a featured speaker at React Rally, Aug. 16-17 in Salt Lake City, a two day single track conference for developers of all backgrounds using Facebook's React.js, React Native, and related tools.
Ryan will be speaking about a core application programming interface (API) of the React Library -- Component Lifecycle Methods. In addition to discussing best practices, Ryan will be debuting an original experimental music composition that serves as a live “musicalization” of a real-time React component’s life cycle!

MX engineer Rosie Thomas was quoted in an article in Skillcrush: The Hard Refresh: "4 Key Things You Need to Know About Ruby on Rails"
Pick a job you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life. What might sound like a quote from a commencement speech or something from an inspirational calendar actually rings true for School of Information Technology alum Brandon Dewitt ’05.
Last week a small MX team headed down to local university, Brigham Young University, for a coding event for students. Our MX team was able to interact with a small group of students from the Computer Science program. Our MX Engineering team spent a few hours with students talking through process for an event that will surely leave a lasting impression. With pizza for fuel, the students went to work writing a program to drive the Roomba. With many worthy attempts by the students, we had five winners take home prizes!
