It's Friday, so it must be time for another instalment in the BACON speaker Q&A series. The perfect way to ease yourself into a weekend of bacon-based brunches and messing around on the internet. Or whatever else you have planned...
Each week we're throwing the spotlight on a different BACON speaker, with a quick-fire Q&A designed to offer a little taster of what we can expect from them at this year's conference (and how they like their bacon).
Next up is Seattle-based Aaron Patterson, whose Curing the Feedback Loop talk promises to help you improve your processes in both your code and your "day-to-day meat curing applications". Our kinda guy.

Aaron was born and raised on the mean streets of Salt Lake City. His only hope for survival was to join the local gang of undercover street ballet performers known as the Tender Tights. As a Tender Tights member, Aaron learned to perfect the technique of self-defense pirouettes so that nobody, not even the Parkour Posse could catch him. Between vicious street dance-offs, Aaron taught himself to program. He learned to combine the art of street ballet with the craft of software engineering. Using these unique skills, he was able to leave his life on the streets and become a professional software engineer. He is currently Pirouetting through Processes, and Couruing through code for AT&T. Sometimes he thinks back fondly on his life in the Tender Tights, but then he remembers that it is better to have Tender Loved and Lost than to never have Tender Taught at all.
