Brian Friesen has been pretending to be a developer for the last 6 years and lives in constant fear of being found out. As an occasional public speaker, he prefers to talk about things that are slightly out in left field. This explains why some people know him as "the regex guy" or "the monad guy". Seriously, who wants to have those titles? Anyway, when he's not writing code, he's probably thinking about it, or, if he's sleeping, dreaming about it. In the rare case that no part of his mind is occupied by something vaguely code-related, he is probably playing with his kids or spending quality time with his wife near Detroit, where he has lived since April 2012, when he took a job with the best company he has ever worked for, Quicken Loans. He is also a raging smart-alec.

My name is Corinna Brock. In my former lives, I have run the busiest bookstore in Boston, was an executive assistant to several A-level executives. I started programming recreationally five years ago, but in the past two years it has become an obsession. I was a student at the Flatiron School in NYC, called 'the Harvard Business School of coding’ by Business Insider magazine.
Specializing in back-end work with an eye towards design, I love both facets of programming. The compulsively organized side of me wants to solve the problem in the best way possible, but the creative side of me wants it to be aesthetically pleasing at the same time. Programming allows me to combine both passions into one.
