Host: Wes Reisz

Software/Technical Advisor C4Media & QCon Chair, previous Architect @HPE

Wes Reisz joined QCon in 2015 and leads QCon Editorial as the conference chair. Wes focuses his energies on providing a platform for practicing engineers to tell their war stories so innovative/early adopter stage engineers can learn, adopt, and, in many cases, challenge each other. Before joining the QCon Team, Wes held a variety of enterprise architecture and software development roles with HP. His focus with HP was around developing/federating identity, integration/development of Java stack applications, architecting portal/CM solutions, and delivering on mobility in places like US Army’s Human Resources Command (HRC), Army Recruiting Command, and Army Cadet Support Program. In 2002, Wes began teaching as an adjunct faculty member at the University of Louisville. He continues to teach 400-level web architecture and mobile development courses to undergraduates. He is currently teaching Mobile Application Development with Android.
