The Podcast

Dec 17, 2019

On Episode 16 Kevin McArdle, owner of SureSwift Capital and special guest host, Bri McCullough, welcome Steve Buchanan, Director at Avenade, on a special TCSW edition of The Tech.MN Podcast to talk about the magic of the Minnesota tech community.

Steve, an eight-time Microsoft MVP and five time author whose motto is to ‘stay humble,’ shares his story of how a high school job led to him catching the bug in IT. Since then he has discovered his sweet spot in the world of tech and is working hard on exposing it to youth and giving back to the community through his website.  

Steve gets candid about impostor syndrome and how he’s overcome it by committing to serving the tech community. He describes the the open source developer culture. Finally we chat about late nights, finding balance, and legacy.
