About Eamonn Boyle

Eamonn Boyle has over 15 years working as a developer, architect and team lead. For the last 2.5 years he’s been working as a full-time trainer and coach, authoring and delivering courses on a range of topics to a broad range of delegates. These include paradigms and technologies from core language skills, frameworks to tools and processes.

Moreover, he has spoken at a number of events and meetups including .NET Developer Guild, BASH and GDG Dublin and aided in the delivery of workshops at KotlinConf, GOTO Amsterdam and RebelCon. Eamonn enjoys a good film, loves a good debate on current affairs and practicing his photography skills.

About Garth Gilmour

Garth Gilmour gave up full time development back in 1999 to teach and mentor full time. Since then he’s delivered well over a thousand courses and workshops to all kinds of programmers from all kinds of backgrounds. He started teaching C++ to C coders, then Java to C++ coders, then C# to Java coders and now teaches everything to everybody, but specialises in Kotlin.

Although self-employed for most of this career, he came to roost six years ago as head of learning at Instil. As part of that role he speaks frequently at meetups, presents at conferences and co-organizes the Belfast BASH series of developer events.When not at the whiteboard he coaches Krav Maga, lifts heavy weights and fights nerf wars with his kids.

About Adele Carpenter

Adele is a Software Engineer at Trifork Amsterdam, where she is working on backend systems for the educational sector. Most of her work day is spent in the JVM/Spring ecosystems. Adele got the coding bug later in life but since then has been making up for lost time, going from command line n00b to employed Software Engineer in just one year.

Her experiences both in and out of tech have given her a unique perspective on the art of programming together with humans, which she hopes is useful to other humans who program with humans.
