Adam Harvey
Software Developer, New Relic

Website | @LGnome

Adam Harvey is a software developer working on PHP, Go, and C language support at New Relic. Adam has worked on a number of interesting and occasionally even useful things in his two-decade career, including prototyping the worst mesh network of all time (based on Android phones), discovering how to reliably lock up a Windows computer by writing an in-browser video editor, and (most usefully) removing the original mysql_* API from PHP. In his spare time, he contributes to a variety of open source projects, a secret robot project that may have some Asimov-related issues, and a variety of half-finished websites and is attempting to drink every beer Vancouver produces.
