Building web and mobile applications is hard! With the proliferation of technologies, devices, frameworks, etc., developing these applications is getting more complex. A full-stack developer would need to know Java (for Android applications), Objective C or Swift (for iOS applications), HTML5, CSS3, Java, .NET, JavaScript, and any of the endlessly changing frameworks (Angular.JS, React.JS, Node.JS, …). It is a full-time job just to try to stay current, let alone build anything. On top of this, people are impatient and want their applications NOW.

Speaker's Bio: 

After graduating from UGA in 1992 with a B.S. in Computer Science, Stacey moved to Japan to teach English for the next two years. Returning to the United States in 1994, he began to work for various companies in many different roles. His first “real” job was installing software in automobile oil change locations and teaching mechanics how to use computers in DOS-based systems. From there, he moved into the exciting world of telecommunications, installing and configuring automated dialing systems for outbound call centers. Several companies and years later, he currently works as a Senior Solutions Engineer for OutSystems. He spends his work time speaking about web and mobile development technologies at various trade shows and helping prospective customers understand the value of the OutSystems platform. When he is not at work, he can most often be found underwater at the Georgia Aquarium where he is one of the volunteer SCUBA divers helping to maintain the exhibits.
