My name is Joey Grover. I am the Mobile Technology Lead at Livio where I handle the mobile technology road map and write the code needed for the Android platform. Livio is a start-up out of Ferndale, MI that has launched its flagship technology, Livio Connect, that connects mobile apps with automotive head-units.
I graduated from Michigan State University with a B.S. in Computer Engineering with a concentration in Biomedical Engineering. I started my career working for IBM as an Associate Programming specialist. The spare time I had from working gave me the chance to teach myself how to program for the Android platform. After about a year working for “Big Blue” I felt that my talents and ambition had outgrown my position and I needed a change. I found out about Livio through the MSU career center and saw they were in need of an Android developer. I was hired for the position and haven’t slowed down since. The start up atmosphere really plays well with my drive; I am constantly challenged and never run out of problems to solve.
The time to start my blog has been long overdue, so it’s starting today! I plan to post about my career, tricks in software engineering with interesting code examples, and all things technology. Oh, and if I throw in one or one hundred links to memes, comics, or cat pictures don’t be alarmed…because it will happen, and you’re welcome.
I hope you all enjoy the blog!!!
