Jonathan Lipps has been making things out of code as long as he can remember. He currently works as a Senior Software Developer for Sauce Labs, which enables him to write code for various open-source projects, like Appium (the Node.js-based mobile automation framework for which he's the primary architect and lead developer).
Jonathan has worked as a programmer in the startup world on and off for over a decade, and given talks on software development at conferences around the world, but is also passionate about academic discussion.
Jonathan has master's degrees in philosophy and linguistics, from Stanford and Oxford respectively. Living in San Francisco, he's an avid homebrewer, rock climber, and writer on topics he considers vital, like the relationship of technology to what it means to be human.
