About the Author


Hi, I’m Joe Kutner. I write about software and curate the JVM at Salesforce Heroku. Earlier in my career, I wrote code at NASA where I fell in love with rockets and space.

Before the Software’s Giant Leap series, I authored The Healthy Programmer, Remote Pairing, and Deploying with JRuby. The Healthy Programmer is available as an audio book and it’s on Audible.com.

There were several people who helped me with this series by reviewing and providing their advice. Thank you to Matt Blackmon, David Thompson, and David Zülke for their attention to detail and their time.
