Dan North and Jessica Kerr make a journey through complexity. At the other side we may find simplicity, or we may find the light at the end of the tunnel is just another oncoming ESB.
Dan North uses his deep technical and organizational knowledge to help CIOs, business and software teams to deliver quickly and successfully. With over 20 years of experience in IT, Dan is a frequent speaker at technology conferences worldwide. Jessica Kerr came to Java development from C, and she departed through Scala and into Clojure. She works for Outpace from her home in St. Louis, Missouri.
Code Mesh, the Alternative Programming Conference, focuses on promoting useful non-mainstream technologies to the software industry. The underlying theme is "the right tool for the job", as opposed to automatically choosing the tool at hand. By bringing together users and inventors of different languages and technologies (new and old), speakers will get the opportunity to inspire, to share experience, and to increase insight. Via presentations and case studies, we aim to raise awareness and extend the knowledge of all participants, mainstream and non-main stream users alike.
