Meet Kevin Babcock, Telerik Evangelist

There is a new face at Telerik, the US wing of Telerik at that, and his name is Kevin Babcock. Kevin is our freshest Technical Evangelist and we are very excited to welcome him to the Telerik team. He recently graduated from Texas A&M University (whoop!) in Computer Science, but before going to school he served in the US Air Force for about 6 years. Aside from being a great mind and an engaging personality (why do you think we hired him?), Kevin is hitting the Technical Evangelist field with a running start. As a student, Kevin was Microsoft's Student Partner at Texas A&M, meaning he was Microsoft's peer liason to the 30,000+ students at the University. And inbetween graduating and starting with Telerik, Kevin even had the opportunity to sit down and interview Scott Guthrie for about 90 minutes. Not a bad way to start! You can catch the recorded interview for yourself on Channel8.

So, next time you're at a conference, stop by the Telerik booth and introduce yourself to Kevin. He- and I- would love to meet you. If you can't make the conferences, then at least add Kevin's new Telerik blog to your readers (those of you that subscribe). We look forward to getting Kevin plugged-in to the Telerik Community, so look for him everywhere soon!
