Dave Karow

Dave Karow is an energetic and animated speaker known for demystifying technology and democratizing access to tools. Dave was fortunate to grow up watching Silicon Valley evolve from chips to software to internet services all around him, affording him a unique perspective on the long arc of technology evolution. Dave punched computer cards at age five, managed an online forum on CompuServe (when that was a thing!), learned grep, sed, and awk before you could just google recipes for regular expressions, and was tech director for the first Webby Awards in San Francisco. Before joining Split, Dave evangelized the shift of performance testing left at BlazeMeter, helping dev teams ship faster with greater confidence. As evangelist at Split Software, Dave speaks about feature flag strategies that connect progressive feature delivery with user-level measurement of system health, user experience, and user behavior.
