Gjeta Gjyshinca

Gjeta is a developer on the core platform team. She joined Morgan Stanley five years ago and has since worked on all aspects of the platform, most recently focusing on profiler-guided optimization, smarter cache reuse, and core performance.

She is a TechWomen100 award winner and has previously presented our platform at Scala Exchange and Scala Days.

James Ward

James Ward is a nerd / software developer who shares what he learns with others through presentations, blogs, demos, and code. After over two decades of professional programming, he is now a self-proclaimed Typed Pure Functional Programming zealot but often compromises on his ideals to just get stuff done. After spending too many sleepless nights in data centers repairing RAID arrays, he now prefers higher-level cloud abstractions with appropriate escape hatches. James is a huge Open Source proponent, hoping to never get burned by lock-in again.
