About David I
David Intersimone, known to many as “David I”, is a passionate and innovative software industry veteran who extols and educates the world on developer tools, software development and software architectures. David I wrote his first computer program, a Prime Number Generator using Fortran on an IBM 360/40, in the Fall of 1969 as a Cal Poly San Luis Obispo student. After graduation with a Computer Science degree in 1973 David spent his first 13 years in the computer industry as a software engineer and project manager.
David joined Borland Software in 1985 where he practically invented Developer Relations. During David I’s five decades as a software engineer, development manager, developer community executive, development cheerleader, and developer advocate, he has created and participated in thriving global developer communities while producing thousands of articles, videos and blog posts while travelled more than 4 million miles to visit with developers.
Before Embarcadero acquired the developer tools business from Borland Software, David spent more than 20 years with Borland in various evangelism, engineering, and development capacities, including creating the company’s developer relations program.
Today, David I shares his visions and insights as a software engineer and pioneer in developer relations with program managers, directors and developers where he gives workshops, webinars, guidance and advice on developer communities, developer advocacy and software development.
