Writer. Speaker. Analyst. Consultant. With a career spanning three decades as a technologist, publisher and conference producer, Alan Zeichick brings depth, experience, vision and thought leadership to the IT industry. As editor-in-chief of Software Development International, AI Expert and the Mathematica Journal — and one of the founding Jolt Judges — Alan pioneered coverage of leading-edge academic and enterprise programming topics. Today, Alan is president of Camden Associates, an analyst firm focused on software development and network technologies. When Alan isn’t doing tech stuff, he drinks coffee, drives his beloved Acura NSX, drinks coffee, takes nature photographs, drinks coffee, and then drinks more coffee. Alan lives in Phoenix, surrounded by saguaro cactuses, hummingbirds and butterflies. Alan really should switch to decaf.
