Ben Evans is a senior technologist with well over 10 years professional experience developing and running world-class projects in a number of sectors including finance, gaming, media and third-sector.

His main technical interests are in building high-performance, highly scalable architectures and applying cutting-edge tech to provide competitive advantage. He has worked towards these aims over a wide range of technologies during his career.

His other driving passion is the creation and development of technical communities – from mentoring and developing junior developers, to running focused, agile development teams, through to organizing national events. He helps to organize two very active developer communities – the London Java Community (well over 2000 developers, one of the largest Java user groups in the world) and the Graduate Developer Community – which is focused on bridging the gaps between University and Industry, and improving the quality of graduates entering the profession.
