Dale Alleshouse, AKA the hideous humpback freak, is a software engineer and researcher at Carnegie Mellon University’s Software Engineering Institute. He is a 25+ year veteran developer with a passion for technology and a penchant for keeping up with software trends. In the course of his career, he has architected and developed many different types of software including systems, robotics, and business. He has a particular affinity toward DevOps focused cloud native business applications which has given him exposure to a litany of frameworks (frontend and backend), databases (relational and NoSQL), and other related tools. He prides himself on understanding software technologies at a base level which enables him to come up to speed in any environment quickly.
Dale’s personal goal is to increase the technical acumen of as many software professionals as possible. Therefore, in his free time, he’s involved in several technical user groups and participates in mentorship programs. He also speaks at conferences and actively contributes to the open source community. When not programming, you can find him either studying philosophy or lifting heavy things in the gym and generally being a menace.
