Ed PriceDirector of Compliance
Ed Price is a man with experience. He comes to Devbridge by way of 25 years of IT and development experience in firms such as The Quaker Oats Company, First Chair Technologies/Adivi, Agfa Monotype/PaperStudio.com, JP Morgan Chase & Co., and BMO Harris Bank. Ed has played a key role in developing such cutting edge technologies as blockchain (BMO Harris) and U.S. Department of Homeland Security & Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) pre-qualification processing system.
But long before any of this Ed was, at the young age of nine, programing simple Microsoft Basic or Assembler code either on his own or out of the Radio Shack Color Computer Magazine called Rainbow. Many times he found mistakes in the print and would try to figure out and correct the problems. He went on to take additional course work in High School learning multiple languages (Cobol, Fortran, Pascal, Basic, and Assembler) at Von Steuben Metropolitan Science Center, a Chicago Public High School.
In his role as Senior Solutions Architect at Devbridge, Ed aspires to build cost effective and efficient solutions to solve problems that face modern businesses today. Despite his numerous professional accomplishments, Ed’s greatest accomplishment is his daughter, Maddy. His favorite films include Blazing Saddles, Blues Brothers, and Pulp Fiction, and he draws inspiration from infamous cartoon character Wile E. Coyote because he’s a guy that keeps on trying and never gives up. He loves cooking and good quality food, but wouldn’t turn you away if you showed up with Doritos or Oreos.

Much of what NXP Semiconductors does is build and design chips. It then puts application software on top of these chips to enable customers to do things they ordinarily might not be able to do in-house— such as develop voice recognition applications. NXP has worked with the Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant development teams to launch development kits for both platforms. In addition, the company is also working on different modules that make it easier to train smart voice devices.
