Software Engineer

Tech Industry Executive



The short “Meetup” version

I’m John Charles Fleming from Tallahassee, Florida. I manage the software engineering team at the Florida Lottery. Our mission at the Lottery is provide a fun, low-cost form of entertainment that helps fund Florida education. I am also a small business owner. My company, Outcome Labs, is a custom software development company that specializes in delivering cost-effective custom solutions with the leading open-source platforms including WordPress, WooCommerce, LearnDash, and Laravel.

Over my career, I have done most of the jobs in a technology company… development, marketing, sales, and services. I have had the opportunity to live in Europe and Asia and worked across a range of industries from high tech to real estate. I have helped close multi-million dollar transactions and moved millions of units through a channel. I have started companies, raised money, built teams, had successes and my share of failures. 

At the core, I guess I am a ‘product guy’. I have had the most fun and success professionally helping build innovative new products and companies that have improved the lives of the people they touched. I have been lucky enough to work with and learn from some very smart people and to be part of fabulous teams that built great products that became market leaders in their space.

Shetland Season 8 — What We’re Watching

Our latest watch was the first episode of Season 8 of Shetland. Ashley Jansen replaces Douglas Henshall as the main character in the show. He was such a central part of the show, that we think you almost have to view this as a “new” show. Time will tell.

Old Man’s War — Latest Read

My latest read was Old Man’s War by John Scalzi. This military science fiction novel was first published in 2005. There is some interesting worldbuilding and tech in the storyline, but the strength is the characters. I just downloaded the second book in the series.
