My name Jon Cwiak. I am a technologist, teacher, and pioneer. I like building things. I have a special affinity for such things created with ones and zeros. I work for Humana as a Senior Software Engineer where I help build people & things. I’ve liked ones and zeros so much that I’ve worked at multiple companies creating very different kinds of things over the last 15 years. Before and while working, I spent several years learning how to build things left with a double major in Computer Science and Information Science.
Later, I went on to learn more about making things & making things better and left with a Master’s Degree in Software Engineering. Away from building, I like talking about building things and regularly attend conferences like Microsoft TechEd, Microsoft Build, That Conference, and many others.
I am a member of multiple groups of people who like to build things including TechOnTap, Northeast Wisconsin Developers User Group, FoxPass, and others. I also became an Microsoft Certified Professional at building things.
When I am not building or talking about building, I spend time checking out what nature has built by hiking and traveling. I also like making things with Legos.
Sometimes there is a spill of ones and zeros. When this happens, I often get asked for help. Along the way I created a way for people to get in touch when they need a proverbial mop & bucket or just advice. You can contact me using Twitter @BinaryJanitor.

Aspect Oriented Programming is a software architecture paradigm that helps guide where and how to implemented functionality that spans responsibilities. This talk will introduce AOP, cover some real world applications, and explain why you might want to take up weaving!
