Craft Beer Meets Technology in San Diego’s Innovation District

While at UC San Diego, David Fischer got his first exposure to San Diego craft beer, which was still in its infancy at the time. He became fascinated with homebrewing, but he had an equally fascinating internship as a developer at Qualcomm. After progressing at Qualcomm, he took a job Amazon in Irvine and commuted via train. Fast forward a few years, when David learns about a job at TapHunter, a fast growing startup that provides online and mobile solutions that help people discover and find great beer. This was his opportunity to combine two things he loved: programming and craft beer.

David traded in his train commute to Amazon for a short walk to TapHunter’s headquarters in downtown San Diego. As a sought after software developer, David has no shortage of job offers across the globe, yet his decision to remain and grow in San Diego is one illustration of the abundant opportunities and viable startup community.
