Alex in a central comandante in our league of developers. He's taken on some of the toughest and more perplexing challengers out there, and with a steely eye and a repertoire of coding knowledge, he's developed some of our most innovative solutions. With a true knack for taking complex problems and reducing them to their simplest key form, there are few development problems that would make Alex hesitate.
