Data Architect, Red Hat, Inc.
Joel is a software architect and product owner at Red Hat. He focuses on building software that moves data, but just moving bits from one data store to another isn't enough - data is only useful when we know what it means, when we trust its accuracy and timeliness, and when we interpret it correctly to solve our real business problems.
In software, Joel is a passionate evangelist for scrum and domain driven design. He applies those concepts in Marketing Operations at Red Hat, helping a development team work with domain experts in Red Hat global marketing to build software that works within the model of marketing data.
Joel went to Georgia Tech, is a certified scrum master, and has built data integration software for technology companies for the past twelve years. He lives with his family and two cats in Raleigh, NC.
