Niel Bornstein


Niel Bornstein specializes in Linux and open source software. A graduate of the Georgia Institute of Technology with degrees in Applied Psychology and Management, he spent 15 years designing and developing corporate and commercial client-server, N-tier, and web-hosted applications, in an impressively random assortment of industries, before settling in to sales engineering. He has also worked in product management and consulting.

He is an occasional conference speaker and the author of . NET and XML and Mono: A Developer's Notebook, as well as having written a number of articles for the O'Reilly Network.

Niel lives in Marietta, Georgia, with his wife, two children, a rotating array of animals (including, at one time or another, dogs, cats, small mammals, birds, reptiles, and fishes), and a few glowing boxes with blinking lights.
