Barrett LaFrance is a Cybersecurity Analyst with Alpine Security. Barrett has also been developing software professionally for more than a decade--mostly design/build/sustainment of web-based business applications--and he holds CompTIA certifications in Sec+ and Net+. Barrett is a fan of design thinking, domain-driven design, infrastructure automation, microservices, and Extreme Programming (XP), and he has led numerous small development teams through their transitions from waterfall to XP. Barrett believes that autonomy, mastery, and purpose are what make life worth living. He plans to write a Sci-Fi/Fantasy novel (someday), and would love to spend a couple of years working on a text-based, in-browser, fantasy/adventure game.
