Lance has been a computer nut ever since his dad bought him a computer when he was a kid. As a result, he obtained his undergraduate degree in computer science and mathematics, and went on to complete a master’s degree in software engineering. After doing Java development for a diverse range of companies such as Kodak, Lockheed, McKesson, CNN, and GE, he decided to end his addiction to heavy inheritance, static typing, and coding without tests. These days, he practices clean Ruby living with lots of well-tested code, class composition, and fun dynamic languages as the founder and lead software engineer of Polyglot Programming. He has extensive experience in Ruby on Rails and data science and is a committer on open source projects such as the Passbook-iOS, Asari and Active Asari gems. In addition, he is a regular speaker at conferences around the world. He is known to practice interspecies pair (“purr”) programming with his orange tabby, Allie, and when he’s not writing code, you will find him diving with sharks, trekking through Chernobyl, or sampling wine.
Marlene, a native South African, got started in software when she landed her first data analysis job after college. Although she didn’t really get to use her business management degree, she did become obsessed with the web and eventually with software development. She returned to school for graduate studies in computer science and medicine to use technology and bioinformatics for improving health care. Away from the computer she’s a voracious reader and an avid genealogist and crafter.
