Billy Korando talks with Dave Rael about being a speaker, the benefits of user groups, automated testing and delivery, and gratitude

Billy Korando works as a software consultant with Keyhole Software in Kansas City Missouri. Billy has been a developer for a little over a decade and has worked in many exciting industries including insurance regulation, shipping, and government. One thing Billy has often wondered throughout his career is why do organizations struggle delivering software to production? The drive to answer this question has led to the developing of his two biggest passions, automated testing and finding ways of reducing workplace toil. Billy also helps run the Kansas City Java Users Group which is dedicated to creating a fun and welcoming environment for Java developers to learn about the latest trends and connect with other developers outside their work. When Billy is not writing code, he enjoys traveling, watching the Kansas City Chiefs (who often end up breaking his heart), and hurriedly writing biographies in a way that makes him sound far more interesting than he actually is.

Billy's top 3 tips for delivering more value:
  1. Be aware of your biases
  2. Be nice
  3. Success requires effort
