This summer I had the wonderful opportunity to represent Infinity and
speak at a number of conferences. Earlier in the year I was doing a
much better job of keeping up with writing up my experiences at each
conference soon after it happened, but as things got busy over the
summer, I got behind. Below the fold, I’ll do a brief recap of each
of the five (yes, five!) conferences I’ve spoken at and not yet
This past weekend I visited Grand Rapids, Michigan for the first
ever Beer City Code on the campus of
Calvin College. I took a class on how to write .NET applications on a
Mac, saw some great talks, presented a
talk on JSON Web Tokens,
and more. My full wrap up is below the fold.
The first weekend in May, I had a chance to attend
LinuxFest Northwest in
Bellingham, WA. I also got to present a couple talks. I had a great
time --- read on for all the details!
I recently had the opportunity to attend and speak at
SCaLE 15x in Pasadena, and
it was an awesome experience. Read on for an overview of all the great
talks I got a chance to see!
Infinity's own Paul Zolnierczyk attended (and presented at)
MKE DOT NET, a one-day development
conference in the Milwaukee area. MKE DOT NET brings together .NET
developers from the Midwest to explore new ideas, code, share
knowledge and discover best practices. Here’s his recap.
YAPC::EU is Europe's premier event for the Perl programming language.
This year the conference was held in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, from August

Chandramouli, to attend, and we asked him to give a quick recap of his
OpenWest is “the largest regional tech conference devoted to all
things OPEN: Hardware, Standards, Source & Data”. This year the
conference was held in Sandy, UT from July 13th to July 16th.
Infinity sent a large contingent of folks to Sandy for the conference,
and a number of them have summarized their experiences in this blog
That's right folks. The annual North American Perl conference,
YAPC::NA, was held in sunny Orlando,
Florida last week. Infinity Interactive was well represented and many
of our developers presented talks.
I joined Infinity a little over two years ago. Came from a much more
traditional corporate culture. A culture contained in traditional
brick-and-mortar buildings. You could stop by a coworker’s cube and
bump into folks in the lunchroom. Infinity has no brick-and-mortar
home. We’re a distributed workforce with our ~25 people spread out all
across the US. Each of us works from our home. Our water cooler is an
IRC channel called #general.
