A23 Consulting was founded by Erik Ruthruff, a veteran of the IT business who has been producing software developer conferences, managing instructor-led training, and editing articles for developers since the days of Clipper in 1989. Erik's passion has been adult computer education since high school and he's been able to stay in that field of interest almost exclusively. When he isn't sitting in front of a computer you'll find Erik biking, running, roller blading, playing tennis or cross-country skiing on or around one of the many trails in Minneapolis. He shares his home with two cats, Sven (the hunter) and Chester (the hider). Erik spent 10 years as a volunteer tutor, advisor, and sat on the board of directors for the Edina A Better Chance program. www.edinaabc.org.
