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.

Devin Gray Series

Wide Awake — Latest Read

My latest read was Wide Awake by Steven Konkoly. This is the third book in the Devin Gray series. This one was a very fast read. There was lots of military tech and action like the earlier books. The plot development was shallow and predictable.

Failure Mode: Expeditionary Force #15

I finished Failure Mode by Craig Alanson this week. This is book #15 in the Expeditionary Force series. It had been positioned as the last book in the series, but Alanson has announced that a sixteenth book, Aftermath, is planned for this December. Ending can be difficult. This one has its flaws, but Alanson did ok. I will miss the Joe and Skippy show.
