This is the homepage of Rod Begbie.

Whatever once was here is now, alas, gone. A big old nasty server crash, combined with a lack of time on my part, means my old blog and homepage are consigned to the digital dustbin.

Quick Bio

Rod Begbie is a forty-something software engineering manager. Originally from Scotland, he now lives in San Francisco, CA. His day job is as an Engineering Manager at Dropbox. Past lives have been as Co-Founder & C.T.O. of Sosh, and writing code at places like Slide, Current TV, Bose and—for 39 days—Google. He thinks anyone who gives themselves the title “Entrepeneur” deserves to be mocked.
