Speaker: Stephen Hellberg

Runtime Support/Change Team Architect (Java, Node.js, Apache Spark) at @IBM

Stephen Hellberg is tenured in IBM Support caring for runtimes : Java and Node.js primarily, although that has included Apache Spark (an analytics toolbox).  Stephen has been supporting IBM Java SDKs/JVMs since version 1.2.2, or around 18 years; currently, his role is concerned with future IBM support delivery, and how to deliver via open-source.  When not diagnosing other people's problems, he's been released to speak at international conferences occasionally, such as W-JAX, or until the next crisis recalls him.
