Mik Kersten
CEO, Tasktop


Mik Kersten spent a decade creating open source developer tools before realizing that programing was not the bottleneck of large-scale software delivery. Since that time, he has been working on creating a model and tools for connecting the end-to-end software value stream. He’s the CEO of Tasktop, where he helps IT leaders transform how software is built. He has been named a JavaOne Rock Star speaker and one of the IBM developerWorks Java top 10 writers of the decade. He was selected as one of the 2012 Business in Vancouver 40 under 40 and has been a World Technology Awards finalist in the IT Software category. Mik is the editor of the IEEE Software Department on DevOps. He created the Eclipse Mylyn open source project as part of his PhD in computer science, pioneering the integration of development tools with the delivery pipeline.
