In this episode

Please join Nate Schutta and Michael Carducci, a hands-on software architect, consultant, entrepreneur, entertainer and speaker with a reputation for doing the impossible. Over the past two decades he has gained experience and insights from a variety of roles spanning the full project life-cycle and numerous technologies.

In addition to his experience in the technology industry, Michael has earned equal recognition and renown as an award-winning professional magician and mentalist. This pursuit has earned him a unique perspective on problem solving, human psychology, and communication.
