Antony Kennedy

Antony Kennedy is currently describing himself as a lead front-end engineer. That means he makes websites work under the hood with JavaScript and keeps them friendly and functional, with animated Ajax interfaces. He has worked on many high traffic sites for companies such as Apple, the BBC, BSkyB and Channel4. He is an advocate of good processes and agile development and blogs about these and web development on his blog Zeroed and Noughted (http://zeroedandnoughted.com/).

He has been working in web and development technologies for over 13 years and remembers Internet Explorer 3 and Xara 3D fondly. He started his career doing IT support in Hastings, U.K., and has since been involved in the entire software development lifecycle, from design and conception to support and warranty. He particularly enjoys fixing broken processes and demonstrating that you can be agile in a waterfall business environment. He learns by doing things that he doesn�t know how to do.

He is the managing director of a small business called Silver Squid (http://www.silversquid.com). He lives in a half-finished house in northeast London and complains about it a lot while being taught how to use a Nintendo DS by his daughter, Talia, and his son, Felix. He can�t cook (except for sushi and pot noodles) and is very difficult to buy presents for.
