People attending this talk will get a different perspective on the use of chat in a collaborative environment.

I'm a problem solver. A software developer that loves applying software principles to infrastructure automation and web applications.
I wanted to program most of my life, realized I didn't like it during my first job, spent 13 years as a network guy that wrote a lot of code, joined an awesome web startup as a web developer, and have rediscovered my joy for software development. After that ended, I moved into a more devops type role where I can have my feet in both camps. I'm currently with a consulting company that's responsible for the infrastructure and applications at a large American sporting league.
