Get to know Rob Conery

My name is Rob Conery and I help developers of all sorts learn what’s new with technology. I have been working in the technology field full time since 1998 as a DBA and then a web developer. My original focus was the Microsoft ASP.NET stack, building tools like Subsonicand the first Micro-ORM: Massive.

In addition I co-founded (acquired byPluralsight) with James Avery and co-host This Developer’s Life with my friend, Scott Hanselman. I currently create videos for Pluralsight and build open source things as I can.

I've worked on a number of open source projects - some you may have heard of:

Massive: the very first "Micro-ORM" for .NET. I made this one weekend after I read a blog post about Entity Framework as a way to mitigate the despair I felt at the time.

Massive-JS: an experiment with data access. I wanted to see what I could do if I chucked the concept of "persistence ignorance" and went all-in with PostgreSQL. Based on the stars I have on Github (well over 1000), it seems to be rather popular.

Moebius: yet another data-access tool. This time for Elixir. I know databases and data access so it makes sense that I build one every now and again in a new language. I like this one a lot.

Subsonic: This one goes way back to 2005. I extracted this from some work I was doing and people liked it a lot. I liked it too - and I still get emails from people thanking me for making it.
