A seasoned veteran in software development with experience in a broad variety of industries and technologies, Floyd is a frequent presenter at Tulsa software community user groups.

Floyd has been programming since age 9 when he first learned how to draw shapes with the Logo programming language. He cut his teeth in the software industry doing part-time work in software QA: writing testware, crafting sample applications, and authoring technical documentation for a digital imaging company during his coursework at Oklahoma State University. He has a BS in Computer Science, and some post-graduate work.
