Jason Shepherd's website

Dr. Shepherd joined the faculty at Buena Vista University in 2007.  Prior to joining the faculty, he spent a decade working as a software engineer and IT architect, having spent most of his time in the national defense (DoD), energy, and transportation industries.  He enjoys bringing those experiences into the classroom so that students can see the connection between computer science theory and real-world practical skills.
