Electric Vehicle show and tell.

by Ralph Jenson, Colin Lee, Mark Hanson, and Dan Holtz | at MinneBar 11 | 9:55 – 10:45 in Visitor Parking Lot | View Schedule

In the visitor lot we will have several electric vehicles and their owners available for showing and telling.

Vehicles currently scheduled to be there.

Tesla Model S, BMW i3, Smart Electric, Chevy Volt 1st and 2nd generation and the Nissan Leaf. We are also trying to arrange for Tesla Model X, Tesla Roadster, BMW i8, eGolf and others.

Many of the owners have multiple years of experience with driving electric vehicles in Minnesota, so this is a great time to ask your real world questions and see the available Cars of Technology up close and personal.

Colin Lee

Colin is an experienced software engineer specializing in Android development. He worked for Mozilla on the Firefox for Android browser rewrite. He has worked for many successful companies in the past fifteen years, including Amazon, Flipgrid (acquired by Microsoft), Cray, Pearson VUE, and When I Work. He runs the Twin Cities Kotlin User Group in his spare time.

Colin has a strong background in infosec as both a former Amazon security certifier and as a security expert on the Android team at Mozilla. Lately, he's been conducting code security reviews for PullRequest.

He has been programming since he learned BASIC on the TRS-80 computer in his parents' basement at age six. He has been writing Android apps since soon after the first Android phone launched and has done so professionally since the last space shuttle landed. In that time, he's probably been pitched every silly app idea.
