The speaker, Dave Aronson, has over three decades of professional software development experience, in a wide variety of languages, systems, techniques, and domains, mostly in Ruby for the past several years and mostly in C before that. He is the T. Rex of Codosaurus, LLC in Fairfax, Virginia, a suburb of Washington DC. What he really does is “software development consulting”, which means not only cranking out code, but also advising development teams on processes, techniques, and tools; training and mentoring developers; and roadmapping projects. He is married, and co-owned by two cats (see their playlists on https://www.youtube.com/davearonson). He also enjoys dark beers, smokey scotches and bourbons, playing guitar, and shooting targets.
