Preston Fick

Senior Software Engineering Manager at Silicon Labs

Austin, Texas

Ever since my Dad handed me my first book on programming when I was young I have been hooked on software development. I’ve been writing software professionally since age 16, and continued to build on that passion throughout my career learning a wide array of languages and technologies along the way.

Lately I've been working with my team on device-to-cloud connectivity for devices and gateways in the Internet of Things (IoT) space. Our focus has been mostly on Thread and Zigbee mesh networks. I'm also interested in automated testing and integration for end-user software. I've worked with my team to architect infrastructure to automatically build, test and package software for customer release.

I’ve also created desktop and mobile applications as well as API libraries and device drivers. Most of my experience comes from the semiconductor industry where I’ve designed and developed tools, utilities and device drivers for USB based solutions. While working in this space I’ve had a chance to enable customers across all modern platforms including Windows, OSX, Linux, Android, iOS and Windows CE/Embedded.

Other technologies I’ve worked with include audio transport, implementing effects objects for consumer audio, Bluetooth and WiFi Direct. Over time I’ve improved my ability to learn and use new technologies quickly.

I’m also an active member of StackOverflow.com where I like to give back to the software community by answering questions and helping new and seasoned developers alike in the areas that I have expertise.
