I like computers
Jonathan is a computer scientist with over a decade of professional experience. Having studied operating systems, distributed computing, and security in school, he spent a hot second in the public sector before heading into startup land. Having since left that world behind, Jonathan is now a Principal Technologist for a large company in the healthcare sector. He can be found coding and presenting everywhere from leading universities to local meetups.
Jonathan has been programming since he was in first grade. He creates all sorts of software, writing, and presentations. Jonathan has written about garbage collection, as well as presented on a variety of topics such as Emacs, his research at the intersection of programming languages and security, and different ways to parse large CSVs. Seriously, he's a nerd.
Jonathan was raised by the then-nascent Free/Open Source Software community from the time he was in high school. He is comfortable working in 8+ computer languages and loves to learn and experiment with new ones and new paradigms.
Always up for a good conversation, Jonathan is also willing to mentor learning developers with the understanding that he's always still learning himself.
