Ryan Heard, Application Developer

Ryan gets great enjoyment and personal satisfaction from understanding how things work—the process of breaking down and rebuilding better. To entertain his passion, Ryan constantly consumes and processes copious amounts of data, whether using sources like Feedly and Wikipedia to others that are more technology specific. With a BS in Computer Science from Wichita State University, Ryan was perfectly suited for the research scholarship he was awarded: Investigating How Physical Security Systems are Affected by Smartwatches. Whether attending DEFCON each year, recreationally programming while rocking out to his favorite band, SoaD, or just enjoying an evening of video games, Ryan is always learning and looking for ways to improve the tech world around him.
