Ken Fogel is a faculty member of the Computer Science Technology Program at Dawson College. He has spoken at Java One, now called Code One and Apache Con and participated in JCrete. He is a member of the Java Community Process Executive Committee. After his first two years speaking at Java One he decided to bring a little of his experiences at these conferences to Montreal and this led to DawsCon. Being a developer means a commitment to life long learning but not everyone can travel to conferences. DawsCon brings to Montreal (this year online) some of the finest speakers in the world to a conference where admission is FREE!
