More Than Coding

Because machines still need humans


My name is Brian Kelly, and I’m a software professional living near Boston. brian-kelly 2

This blog focuses on the human aspects of software engineering and how the worlds of machine and man can better be bridged.

Most of my career has been spent creating distributed systems. I worked for a number of years building CORBA and Web Services middleware products for IONA Technologies (subsequently acquired by Microfocus) such as Orbix and Artix.

Currently I’m the VP of Engineering at TimeTrade Systems in Tewksbury, MA. I also write about software for The Huffington Post.

The banner image above is from the classic science fiction movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey. It’s the moment when the astronaut Dave Bowman begins to shut down the ship’s HAL 9000 computer because it has gone haywire and killed some of the ship’s crew.
