Blacks In Technology Announces New Editor
Over the years Blacks In Technology has always done our best to feature and promote the success and achievements of Black men and women in technology. Our efforts have yielded quite a bit of great content delivered to our community in the form of articles, audio podcasts, and informational video interviews. In order to better serve the BIT community and build upon the foundation that we have already laid, we understood that we had to grow our team in order to properly scale our efforts.
Recently we took a step towards both. Blacks In Technology is happy to announce Michael Jenkins as our new Editor. Michael has been a long time member of the Blacks In Technology community and a very active and vocal participant in our Slack channel. His shared vision for BIT along with his passion for writing made selecting him as Editor a very easy decision. We welcome Michael to the Blacks In Technology family.
Michael Jenkins is a graduate of Iowa State University with BS and MS degrees in Computer Engineering. Over the past 20 years, he has worked with a variety of technologies including integrated circuit design and infrastructure automation. Recently, Michael has worked to automate deployments for high-traffic websites in a variety of industries including automobile sales, life sciences, and pharmaceuticals. Michael is an AWS Certified Solutions Architect at the Associate level and is also versed in other cloud technologies. He is a member of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity and lives in the Los Angeles metro area.
