John Berryman started out in the field of aerospace engineering, but soon found that he was more interested in math and software than in satellites and aircraft. He made the leap into software development, specializing in search and recommendation technologies. John’s a senior software engineer at Eventbrite, where he helps build Eventbrite’s event discovery platform. He also recently coauthored a tech book, Relevant Search, (Manning). The proceeds from the book have mostly paid for the coffee consumed while writing it.
