John A. De Goes has been writing software for more than three decades,
and in that span of time, John has seen first-hand the challenges of
large-scale software development. John's passion for finding better ways
of writing software has taken him through agile and lean development,
pair programming, functional programming, and formal software
verification. John is the founder and co-organizer of
LambdaConf, the first Fantasyland
event, and the world's premier conference on functional programming.
When not donating his time to FIOL, John enjoys contributing to
open source software, learning new things, lifting heavy things, and
spending time with his wife and family in Boulder, Colorado.
