Kipp is among the very best senior developers with whom I've had the privilege of working. His pragmatic approach to development taught me a great deal about managing large projects and balancing business concerns with writing well-architected systems.
His top-notch education and commitment to continually learning new techniques made Kipp a fantastic mentor, and I often think back to lessons I learned in my time working with him to guide my professional development.
One of his biggest strengths, and the best lesson I learned from him, is his honesty in all things. Kipp taught me to never compromise my integrity - that being trusted by my colleagues at all times is the best way to ensure my success.
