Daniel Brolund
Daniel Brolund

Agical

Daniel is a software developer who likes the alternative perspective. In his development profession he has contributed to big-bang-disasters, globally deployed successes, and a lot between those extremes, all while learning important lessons. Some off-development conversation starters are Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, photography, commute biking, guitar playing, electrical cars, wild animals, anarchy, golf, and cooking. If that doesn't help you can always default to software development stuff. He is co-author of the book "The Mikado Method" with Ola Ellnestam for Manning, and he is a co-founder of the company Agical where he works.

He has developed complex computer systems within health care, defense and online banking and he knows that software must be easy to use, extend and deploy in order to be worth developing. He is co-author of the book "The Mikado Method" with Daniel Brolund for Manning, and he is a co-founder of the company Agical where he works.

Background

Reaktor Dev Day is a one-day, four track conference arranged by the creative technology company Reaktor. Back in 2010, we got tired of having so few quality tech conferences with international speakers in Finland. We then took the matter in our own hands, and this year, Dev Day will be organized for the fourth time. Did you miss the last year’s event or just feel like a rundown on some of the action? Check out the event photos, videos, speakers’ slides and the live blog!
