Scott Bellware is a short, bald man with 25 years of experience who works with development teams who have completely screwed themselves into an intractable mess of tightly-coupled monolithic madness by paying attention to cute people rather than smart people. Scott is a contributor to the Eventide toolkit for event-sourced, autonomous services in Ruby, but Scott does it better than Nathan, and he’s totally not bitter.

Beth is a software engineer at Flywheel, a web infrastructure startup in Omaha, Nebraska. She’s also a former airborne cryptologic linguist for the US Air Force, fluent in Mandarin. Things you can ask her about include Ruby, cats, board games, BSG, karaoke, and building applications that convert songs into auto-tuned cat meows. Things she’ll have to kill you if you ask her about: the airborne linguist part. Also, she likes to make emojis look like they’re farting.
