Joel Bennett

United States
Joel is an open source developer and DevOps practitioner


Creator of many PowerShell-releated projects, from the Jupyter PowerShell kernel to the PoshConsole WPF PowerShell host control, and ShowUI, the PowerShell WPF UI toolkit, Joel has been doing open source software development since the late 90's, and has contributed to many other projects as well, such as geoShell, WinShellEx, the PowerShell Community Extensions.

He has a Masters in Computer Science from Rochester Institute of Technology, specializing in Machine Learning, and has been a professional developer for years, having worked at Xerox, Splunk, Questionmark and several startups.

Joel speaks English and Spanish fluently, and wishes he had more opportunities to keep his Spanish current.  His primary areas of interest in software development are in automation -- how computers can ease or automate the tasks we deal with day-to-day.
