Adam Harvey

New Relic

Biography

Adam is a PHP Agenteer (it’s totally a word) at New Relic who spends most of his time swearing at C compilers and the PHP API, usually not in that order. In between said bouts of invective, Adam works on various open source projects, including PHP, plays cricket, kayaks, and continues in his ongoing quest to find the best beer in the world. (Well, OK, it’s totally Westvleteren 12, but it’s a good excuse to drink more beer.)

Proposals for this user

* Numfar, do the dance of compatibility: moving languages forward without leaving users behind

Moving a language forward in backward incompatible ways is often necessary, but can be hard on users. In this talk, I'll compare and contrast approaches used to support older code bases in different languages, and look at what works and what doesn't.

* Welcome to the (home office) jungle

Working remotely can be great. It can also be terrible. All that freedom! All that flexibility! None of that pesky human contact! Of course, it's not all sunshine and roses (particularly that last one), and I'll be talking about how to balance remote work to get the most out of it.
