Erik Haugsjaa, MS
Erik Haugsjaa has been developing web applications since the web's first graphical browser (NCSA Mosaic) arrived in 1993. He is a "full-stack" software engineer and loves working on projects from requirements gathering and system architecture, all the way to release and ongoing maintenance. He has created secure and mobile-friendly websites and databases for a wide-range of businesses and nonprofits to help them manage their unique business workflows and their user-friendly public websites.
In a former life, Haugsjaa studied electrical and computer engineering (B.S. 1992, M.S. 1994) at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and once worked on a programming project simulating Rocky Mountain forest fires for the U.S. Forest Service. He also studied artificial intelligence in a computer science Ph.D. program before realizing that his true love is software engineering, and helping people use the World Wide Web to enhance learning and self-education.
