Speaking

I enjoy sharing what I know or interesting things I've done with others. Often that takes the form of writing code, writing a blog post, or having a one-on-one conversation with someone.

Periodically, however, that takes the form of me standing at the front of a room and sharing in presentation format. This documents my experience in those engagements.

I'm currently passionate about Open Source Software, Scala, the Lift Framework, and topics around the development and operation of streaming data platforms (like the one I help build every day using Kafka). If you're interested in having me speak about these topics for your group, drop me a line on Twitter.

Upcoming speaking

None at the moment. =)
