Keanan Koppenhaver is CTO at Alpha Particle, a digital consultancy that helps plan and execute digital projects that serve anywhere from a few users a month to a few hundred thousand. When he’s not simplifying and modernizing legacy code, he’s riding the L around Chicago or trying to keep his cat off his keyboard. Keanan believes that more technology isn’t always the answer, but when it is, it’s important to get it right.
