We are very pleased to announce three new additions to the Relevance team:
Chris Redinger: An Extreme, Test-Driven Software Developer, Christopher has been programming since the mid-90s, when he cut his teeth on Perl while working his way through college in Maine. After putting in his time in the dot-com world, with the stock option wallpaper to prove it, he made the jump to consulting. During that time he used the myriad of available Java based web frameworks and came to the conclusion that there must be a better way. That better way for him started with the "Agile Manifesto" and has led him to Relevance, Inc. At Relevance he continues to refine ideas such as those in "Getting Real" and the Lean Startup movement, and how best to apply these in the Ruby and Clojure ecosystems.
Shay Frendt: Shay Frendt brings a passion for both business and technology to the mix, having worked in the startup space as a designer, in international marketing as a translator, in the corporate world as a public sector tax consultant, and now as a developer and project manager here at Relevance. He hails from Atlanta, plays the drums, can be found snowboarding in the Winter, scuba diving in the Summer, and coding at all other times.
Kristoffer Singleton: Kristoffer hails from a business consulting, project management and professional software training background. He has worked with companies of all sizes to deliver over 10,000 hours of hands on training seminars at industry conferences and companies throughout the United States including engagements with Fortune 100 and Fortune Global 500 companies. Kristoffer is a veteran of the video game industry, hailing most recently from the enterprise middleware development space for PC and console games where he was a Director of development. Kristoffer holds undergraduate degrees in Marketing and Management, an MBA from the Duke University Fuqua School of Business, and a deeply rooted belief that Batman (R) would always beat Superman (TM) in a fight to the death.
Welcome, all of you!
