I’m Brian Wigginton. I live in Austin, TX with my wife Elisa.
I currently work for
Evosure, a startup Applied Systems working with GoLang, Angular, Postgres, AWS, Electron and more.
I went to TCU and have a BS in Computer Information Technology. Go Frogs!
My first computer was a 166MHz AMD K6 desktop from Computer City my parents bought for me in the 6th or 7th grade. At some point the thing kept crashing giving me the BSoD. Turns out the Fan had died and the processor was slowly cooking itself! I still remember pulling it out of the case and seeing the chared edged of the processor.
Probably the biggest influence for me getting into technology was my brother Scott Barrett Wigginton.
Sometimes when he would come home to visit from college we would setup his original RadioShack TRS-80 computer and play some of the classic games he had. This was my earliest experience with computers.
Scott was a Texas A&M Graduate, achieving a Masters in Meterology. He then moved to Brownsville, TX and worked for the National Weather Service.
Sometime in 2001, Scott started complaining of a bump and having pain under his armpit. 6 weeks later we lost Scott due to Melanoma Skin Cancer.
Scott went by the handle
swigg on IRC and moderated a channel called
#brothers. If anyone was a member of that channel I’d love to hear from you!
