Mitchell Hashimoto started programming in middle school, teaching himself how to code through open source libraries and zip files he could download on the internet. He is a pilot, and owns his own plane, which happens to be a Cirrus. He spends an hour a day studying or practicing flying, and even takes his wife and dog up every now and again, when there is something worth flying to and they can make the oxygen work for then dog.
He attended college at the University of Washington in Seattle, which was located equidistance from Amazon, Google and other cloud focused infrastructure companies. As you could guess, there was a huge focus on this topic while he was at school, and he was able to gain access to vast resources through his computer lab and research projects. It was these projects put the ideas in his head, on what he could make in order for infrastructure to work better.
This is the creation story of HashiCorp.
