I'm Griffin Caprio. I've had a long career in technology, namely as a CTO for several companies, Head of Engineering at Enova and an entrepreneur. In 2013, I founded the Chicago CTO Forum, a private, local community of technology executives that's grown to over 250 members.
Over the years, I've tried to help others in Chicago realize their entrepreneurial dreams by starting the Bootstrappers Breakfast, the Chicago Lean Startup Circle and the Chicago Semantic Web Meetup. I've also been developing OSS for over a decade, most notably helping create Spring.NET.
Lastly, I write as much as a I can. Both in my blog as well as for others. Popular topics I've written about: My Dad, Unit Testing, Software Factories, SOA, Dependency Injection, DSLs and Productivity. I also do the occasional book, watch review and article contribution. I was also a guest blogger on O'Reilly, tackling Semantics, RDF and XML.
