A written version of a talk I presented at various software conferences and events in 2019, about the economics of programming and the social and environmental impact of modern software development.
Hi there. I'm Dylan.
I do interesting things with computers, code, comedy, music and video – then I travel all over the
world and tell people about it. (Or at least, I used to - now we do it all on Zoom.) I run Ursatile, a fully online
training company for remote workers and software professionals. I'm a keynote speaker, a Microsoft MVP, I created
Rockstar - a programming language which
started as a joke and ended up in Classic Rock magazine - and I
own the best web address in the
history of the internet.
