Joseph Fahey

Joseph Fahey has been a developer for nearly two decades. He got his start in the Digital Humanities in the early 2000s. Ever since then, he has been trying to hone his skills and expand his inventory of techniques. This lead him to Common Lisp and then to Clojure when it was first introduced. As an independent developer, Joseph was able to quickly start using Clojure professionally. These days, Joseph gets to write Clojure for his day job at Empear AB.

Scott McCaughie

Scott McCaughie lives near Glasgow, Scotland where he works as a senior Clojure developer for Previse, a Fintech startup aiming to solve the problem of slow payments in the B2B space. Having graduated from Heriot-Watt University, his first 6 years were spent building out Risk and PnL systems for JP Morgan. A fortuitous offer of a role learning and writing Clojure came up and he jumped at the chance. 5 years of coding later and it's the best career decision he's made. In his spare time, Scott is an avid reader, enjoys behavioral psychology and financial independence podcasts, and keeps fit by commuting by bike, running, climbing, hill walking, snowboarding. You get the picture!
