David is a programmer, statistician, founding member of Clojure/Core, and author of several open source Clojure projects, including Incanter, a statistical computing and data visualization library; Avout, a distributed implementation of Clojure’s concurrency primitives and Multi-Version Concurrency Control (MVCC) Software Transactional Memory (STM); and Analemma, a lightweight charting and SVG graphics library.
Aaron has deep experience in building robust and scalable infrastructure from the enterprise to high performance computing to the cloud. Interested and experienced in functional languages, he been a part of the Clojure community from its early development. At Sentry Systems he was the team lead, co-architect and implementer of high reliability, high performance, KVM based healthcare cloud computing platform. At SiCortex Aaron participated in ICE9 processor verification effort and developed a unique, scalable, event-oriented key-as-value data store for system configuration and coordination. Aaron worked at HP as a software engineer and designed, implemented, documented and tested new cluster parallel execution technology. He is passionate about technology and seeing engineering teams operate effectively and collaborate closely with groups and interests across the rest of the company.
Jonathan has a variety of computer experience writing software from language design to volumetric imaging systems. At Sentry Data Systems he co-led the design of a language compiler for a new distributed query language built with Clojure and on top of a NoSQL database system. While working at Phillips Medical Systems, he developed and improved volumetric visualization tools for PET imaging systems. He has also worked with banks and other large customers to implement and manage large scale print process systems. He is passionate about deploying excellent software built on the solid foundation that the Clojure language provides. Jonathan has been a Clojure user since 2010 and participated in the Clojurescript project.
Chris has worked at every level of software, from device drivers for Compaq’s Unix OS to web and desktop user interfaces for Four D Development. At Sentry Data Systems he helped build a distributed database and was key in delivering a compiled query language to access it. He has been a Clojure user since 2008 and first had a patch accepted 3 months later. Since then he has become a primary contributor to Clojure and implemented several features and fixes for the language. Chris has contributed to free and open source projects since 1998, including Harmony/FreeQt, Gentoo Linux, GMapEZ, and Clojure. Chris is co-author of the book Joy of Clojure.
Joel Martin’s experience spans the entire software stack and many parts of the software industry. At Sentry Data Systems Joel worked closely with Aaron Brooks (another LonoCloud lead engineer) to architect, design, implement and deployed an IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) cloud product from scratch to first external customer within in 7 months. While at Sentry Joel created the noVNC open source project which is a VNC client implemented using HTML5 technologies that allows seamless access to virtual system consoles. The noVNC project is now a core component of many IaaS cloud stacks including OpenStack, OpenNebula, CloudSigma, OpenNode, Ganeti Web Manager, etc. At Red Hat Joel was the lead on the team that added Solaris support to the Red Hat Network suite. At Compaq/Hewlett-Packard, he worked on the high-performance fibre channel driver for Tru64 and on several aspects of porting file-system and volume management SSI cluster technology from Tru64 to HP/UX. In addition, Joel has contributed to development of the WebSockets and HTML5 standards and he was a Gentoo Linux developer for several years, and he continues to contribute to open source projects. Joel is passionate about creating computer software, systems, infrastructure and platforms that are easy to use, fast, scalable, reliable and reusable.
Paul's variety of experience spans distributed financial systems, embedded medical devices, SOA apps, and rich client apps. On these projects, he was often the one tackling hard concurrency problems. In 2010, he heeded Clojure's siren song and is thrilled to be working on a next-generation cloud platform in LISP.

Developed over 50 integrations with Agfa's IMPAX (PACS) in order to improve workflow business process and reduce errors. These integrations have been with dictation products, visualization products, Radiology Information Systems (RIS), Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems, and others. His development work at Agfa enabled IMPAX to get into hospitals where ease of integration was a priority. At SmartBiz Services, he created a Referral Management System web application for cardiology using Ruby on Rails.
Matt's been fascinated with software since he first laid hands on an Apple ][. He's researched Model-Driven Engineering and formal verification, and published novel techniques for automated test data generation. Matt's worked on Java/J2EE web applications, desktop software, cloud-hosted services for mobile apps, and a cloud computing platform.
