Oh, you know,
strikes and gutters, ups and downs.


I’m Scott Schecter, president of Schecter & Co.

I’m a polyglot programmer and systems administrator. I prefer open source software that the owner can freely modify and believe proprietary software should be avoided if at all possible. I also believe simplicity is the ultimate sophistication and the wheel in the sky keeps on turning.

I have been bringing high quality custom software solutions to market for customers in the governmental and private sectors for over ten years.

When not working, I enjoy reading, listening to music, cycling, and general tomfoolery.
