Here are some of our top speakers from this DevFest 2019! 🎶 Run Run Run - Shaka Ponk 🎶
Frédéric Harper: As a senior developer at DigitalOcean, Frédéric helps startups find success in the cloud and get the most out of our Hatch program. Fred has shared his passion for technology on the stage at over 150 events around the world. He’s served the communities at npm, Mozilla, Microsoft, and Fitbit, and is the author of the book “Success in Programming - How to Gain Recognition, Power, and Influence Through Personal Branding” at Apress. This is a very passionate individual who believes in the power of communication … and cat videos.
Chloe Condon: Chloe is an SF based Senior Cloud Advocate for Microsoft. For the past 2 years, she has been working at Sentry.io, where she created the Sentry Scouts program (a camp) themed meet-up ft. patches, s’mores, giant squirrel costumes, and etc). If you could not pick up the theatricality of Chloe’s meet-up, she was a professional music theater performer for over 20 years and has a BA in Performance Theater from San Francisco State University. Perhaps the only engineer you’ll meet in “Hairspray”, “Xanadu”, “Carrie the Musical”, and “Jerry Springer: the Opera” - she is passionate about bringing people to non-traditional backgrounds in the world tech. Since her graduation from Hackbright Academy in December 2016, Chloe has worked with a wide variety of developer communities and loves to help developers’ lives easier. In 2018, Chloe was featured in the Grace Hopper Conference gallery featuring 15 influential women in STEM by AnitaB.org. In early 2018 was named one of the “200+ Thought Leaders in Crypto and Blockchain” and still knows absolutely nothing about Crypto and Blockchain. Seriously-not a thing. She considers it her greatest accomplishment. She is also passionate about bringing humor, empathy, and human-ness to tech. You can learn more about it in her keynote from DjangoCon 2018.
Kenneth Rohde Vhristiansen: He is a Danish software engineer and architect, specialized in mobile and web technology. Working at Intel out of Copenhagen, Kenneth helps define Intel’s strategy and plans for the Web Platform, as well as puts it into action. Before joining Intel, Kenneth was employed by Nokia (Denmark and Brazil) where he worked on the Nokia N9 web browser, Qt, WebKit, and other mobile projects. Kenneth is an elected member of the W3C Technical Architect Group (TAG).
