Jordan Schuetz

Developer Advocate 🥑

I ❤️ Developers and love educating them through my interactive content and events. My passion to serve the developer community dates back to 2011 when I started my indie game studio which I named Ninja Pig Studios. Over the course of 5 years, I developed and self-published over 15 titles on a variety of platforms such as the B&N NOOK, Kindle Fire, and Nintendo Wii U. In total, my titles acquired over a half a million paid downloads and millions have watched game play from my titles on YouTube.

While still actively creating video games in college, I discovered the University of California Riverside had a need for customized educational software to teach students how to code HTML and CSS. To today's date, Learn CS8 has saved students over $300,000 in book fees and is helping business students at UCR learn computer science.

Currently, I'm living and working in San Francisco at MuleSoft as a Developer Advocate! I host local community meetups, write technical content, educate developers and speak at technology conferences. On the weekends I enjoy hiking, autocross, live music, and spending time with friends at the park. Feel free to reach out to me anytime, I'm here to help 🥑
