Nick Gamb is a Sr. Developer Advocate with Okta and leads Okta's Game and XR developer community. With an overly inquisitive mind, and an unhealthy obsession with proficient problem solving, Nick enjoys taking things apart and hacking them together to solve problems creatively and efficiently. In this way, Nick's career was launched via reverse engineering and job automation. At some point this "work smarter, not harder" mentality transformed into an exciting journey that included partnering with some of the largest names in tech, leading developer experience and relations, and designing extremely complex security infrastructure that thousands interact with every day. Nick started coding at an early age, teaching himself through the reverse engineering of game engines. After gaining experience with C and C++, Nick moved on to C#; pivoting towards web development after a brief stop coding data transformations. After an exciting career detour involving film school, broadcasting, news studios, and helicopters, Nick eventually found himself back at his roots in tech focusing on identity security.
