Meet the Developers Behind the Obama Campaign

1/14/2013 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join the Obama for America team and New Relic for Code Forward – a three-city tour with the developers behind President Obama’s 2012 re-election. Learn how the OFA team redefined how technology is used to run a successful political campaign.

Finding the right people and the right tools for the job can mean the difference between success and failure for any organization. But in a political campaign, where financial and time considerations are paramount, the risks are even greater.

Learn how the Obama for America’s focus on team building and efficiency helped them build a sophisticated cloud-based infrastructure that used big data to maximize their campaign’s success, volunteer engagement and voter outreach.

Featured speakers include:

Scott VanDenPlas - DevOps Tech Lead

Ryan Kolak - Lead Engineer, Narwhal Integration

Nick Leeper - Lead Engineer, Finance/Fundraising

Chris Gansen - Dashboard Tech Lead

Jason Kunesh - Director of User Experience
