My name is Kevin Langdon. I live in the woods outside Milton, Pennsylvania with my wife
and three boys.
I like to build stuff, usually that stuff ends up being virtual. Below are some short summaries of key projects I have been a part of.

Mid 2011 I decided to build my own house. Not just be my own general contractor, but literally build my own house.
It is becoming one of my most fulfilling projects to date and probably the only one that will still be around in 20 years.
I plan to launch 3 to 4 iOS games in 2013 under the Buzzer Shot brand. Hopefully one of those will become profitable and allow me transition this into a full fledged independent game studio in downtown Milton.
Eric Budin and I launched the beta to ponyup in August 2012.
It allows users to challenge their friends with money.
It's that simple, but we believe that it has huge potential.
A real estate management and investment company started with Eric and Jeff.
We know own 4 commercial, 1 industrial, and 7 residential units.
This was one of my most exciting projects. My cousin, Andrew Brown
, and I started oob in late 2006.
We grew it to be the largest online golf score tracking system and a golf community that was competitive
with some very large media companies. We sold oobgolf to SkyGolf in late 2009.
I stayed on at SkyGolf for a year to build the SkyGolf and oobgolf iPhone and Android apps.
I started creating this tool to fill a need to see Flash Remoting traffic in clear text.
It is now becoming a broader all-purpose HTTP proxy that is very helpful in any client rich development.
It now has over 10,000 users.
Megan and I moved to Boston to help Jeremy Allaire and a team of about 10 start Brightcove.
Brightcove is a venture-backed startup hoping to change the way consumers and rights owners exchange media.
Brightcove went public in early 2012.
Yep, the computer geek bought some big trucks. Eric, Jeff and I grew the company to a fleet of 10 operating in both Pennsylvania and Ohio before selling to some of the drivers.
For a few months I had to put all software development on hold and run dispatch 24/7.
thinjoy is a web application designed to help users lose and maintain weight. The most exciting part
about this project was that I did it with both of my brothers, David and Bryan
. We launched the site
in early 2008.
Launched in late 2007, Naugle Group is the only recruiting firm focused 100% on Rich
Internet Application development. I started this company with my cousin, Andrew Brown
Built system for Miramax Films to rent out their film library on facebook, Google TV, and iPad apps.
I worked with Universal Mind
and Mapquest to develop the first Actionscript 3 mapping APIs.
This was a pretty fun project with some really cool technology. I am excited to see what others build with it.
My first sample app was the course finder
I worked with five other individuals to build this company. Three of us met at Comcast.
The idea is pretty simple, replace current traditional advertising like posters, illuminated signs, and even
billboards with flat panel television screens. This creates a network of rich media displays that can be changing
content all the time. The focus is on building the software that enables the content creation and scheduling as well as
the sign management.
I was a volunteer and board member for Circle Thrift. It was an exciting project to see
develop. We purchased a building in November of 2003. After major renovation the store opened for business
in mid April of 2004. The team continues to spend countless hours working together to make the store a self-sustaining
blessing to its customers and supporters.
I was forced to learn all kinds of new things about retail, non-profits, construction, and even
love. Sadly when Megan and I moved to Boston from Philly, we had to stop playing an active role at Circle Thrift.
is a good friend and an incredible painter.
We combined our different talents to create this website.
For the most part it is an experiment in branding and viral marketing.
I started working at Comcast in early 2002 and continued to develop the website at comcast.net until
I left in 2004. The experience was an exciting one as I was able to manage the entire engineering for a
site that maintained 2 million hits per day. After leaving the portal team at Comcast, I took a position
as Manager of Advanced Engineering and created Comcast's first Instant Messaging application.
I was a partner of D2 Media for about 2 years. We developed the company into the
premier web engineering and design services company in central PA. While there I worked on a number
of fascinating projects such as StarPolish.com
Harrisburg Chamber of Commerce
and Talent Fusion.
The company continues to be
successful and develop great sites and products. D2Media recently changed their name to "andCulture".
Truth Solutions Group
TSG was my first venture with 4 fellow student in my freshman year of college. We did provide website
development and hosting, however I primary goal was to create online calendaring software for non-profit
organizations. Eventually almost the entire team became employees of my next venture at D2 Media.
