Nir Alfasi

http://alfasin.com

Nir is a professional software engineer with expertise in Java, Node and Python and with over 14 years of experience in developing server-side applications. He likes challenges and has passion for building things, playing with new technologies and learning new things. After graduating B.Sc. in computer science he stayed another few years in university to complete M.Sc. in Mathematics specializing in Graph theory and algorithms. Then felt that the academy-life might not be for him after all, so he joined the high-tech industry. It took a bit over a year to understand that large corporations are not his cup of tea before he joined a small startup as the third developer, two years later that startup was bought and he moved to the Silicon Valley to help it continue to grow. Two years ago he joined Netflix and now is a member of Cloud Platform Automation team, helping his fellow engineers to deliver great "moments of truth" to over 60 million subscribers.

Ron Lichty has been managing and, more recently, consulting in managing software development and product organizations for over 25 years. Before that, as a programmer, he coded compiler code generators, was awarded patents for compression and security algorithms for embedded microcontroller devices, wrote 2 widely used programming texts, and developed the computer animation demo that Apple used to launch and sell a next-generation line of PCs. The primary focus of his consulting practice has mirrored what he did as a manager: untangling the knots in software development. As Ron Lichty Consulting, he takes on fractional Interim VP Engineering roles, trains teams and executives in scrum, transitions teams to agile, trains and coaches managers in managing software people and teams, and advises organizations and coaches teams to make their software development “hum.” His 450-page book, Managing the Unmanageable: Rules, Tools, and Insights for Managing Software People and Teams, was recently released as video training - LiveLessons: Managing Software People and Teams - both from Pearson and on O’Reilly’s Safari Network. He also co-authors the periodic Study of Product Team Performance.

I've been lucky enough to work at some great companies and at times I've created my own companies to provide this environment. My career has moved from science, to scientific programming, to game development, to eLearning, to full-stack web development. I've worked on platforms ranging from 8 bit microprocessors to massively scalable cloud services. I've designed and programmed many successful products and built a multitude of software tools and frameworks. I've built and managed high performance engineering teams. I've built and sold successful companies. I love engineering software. I am a core committer on the DonkeyCar project, www.donkeycar.com, an open source framework for self-driving scale cars. I am in the top 2% reputation on stackoverflow for 2019 (as of July). I like to learn things and help others learn.
