Steve Neely is officially a software engineer at Rally. In reality, he gets to play with a broad range of technologies and systems, attend and present at conferences, and write about all the cool stuff he discovers along the way. His current focus is on continuous delivery, big data, service-oriented architectures and software craftsmanship.
Steve's background is in researching the design, construction and management of globally distributed systems. He has worked at top-ranked universities across the UK and Ireland as a researcher and teacher. Steve has produced a broad corpus of research publications and organized conferences at an international level.
When Steve is not teaching Ruby at Rally, wrangling Clojure code or pushing data around Cassandra clusters you can find him rock climbing with his team or skiing the powdered slopes of Colorado.
