Development Practice Co-Lead

Josh Friend

The first programming language Josh learned was BASIC. When he was 10 years old, Josh and his dad spent a weekend cobbling together his first computer: a DOS PC with an Intel 486 CPU. He typed in 10 PRINT "Hi Josh" and immediately knew what he wanted to do for the rest of his life.

While his computer doesn’t have a TURBO button anymore, Josh’s passion for software development remains strong. He appreciates how projects at MichiganLabs give him an opportunity to work with and learn about a variety of new and exciting technologies. It’s what makes him so excited to come to work each day.

In his spare time, Josh and his wife, Stephanie, raise chickens in their backyard. They also enjoy traveling around the country on the American Kennel Club circuit with their Newfoundland, Jasmine.
