Jesse McCabe - CEO / Strategist - Co-Founder


Jesse McCabe has founded and nurtured Solid Interactive since 2007. He's busy everyday making sure his clients, his family and his SOLID employees are happy and the business is successful. He took a little time out of his crazy day to answer a few questions:

Q: Who is your tech inspiration?

I don't really think of any one person as my tech inspiration.  I am inspired by groups rather than individuals.  Last year's OSCON really stuck with me (and I think the rest of the team).  The open source groups and what they are doing for the industry now is incredible.

Q: What is your strongest computer language?

I think I'm strongest in front-end (HTML, CSS), but in terms of a programming language and platform, probably C#/ASP.Net. 

Q: What is your favorite movie?

The Big Lebowski

Q: What is your favorite music or musician?

Steely Dan

Q: What music/musician do you code to?

It changes, I'm on the hunt for new tunes all the time.  Bands on heavy rotation are: Andrew BirdBlind MelonJane's Addiction.

Q: What website can you NOT live without?

Used to be Reddit, but now it's Chase.com.

Q: Do you have a tattoo? If you could get one, what would it be?

No tattoos yet.  Maybe the Solid logo on my back, or on my face Mike Tyson style. (Image is TBD)

Q: If you could do ANYTHING, what would it be?

I think I'm already doing it, but if it has to be something else: I would love to take my family across Asia and visit India, Vietnam, China, and Japan.
