Jon Clausen - Speaker at Into the Box Latam 2023

Jon Clausen


Jon hails from Grand Rapids, Michigan and has been developing CFML applications for almost 20 years. He was born and raised in South Dakota and attended SDSU, DePaul University and Aquinas College. In 2004, after 14 years with a Fortune 100 company, he founded Silo, a full-stack development and technology consulting firm in Grand Rapids, Michigan, before coming to work full-time for Ortus in 2018.

Jon has developed and written applications in CFML, Javascript, PHP, and Ruby in addition to dabbling in Java, Python, Bash, Scala, Clojure as the need warrants. He keeps current with both old and new database technologies including SQL Server, MySQL, MariaDB, Oracle, PostgreSQL, Couchbase, and - his personal NoSQL favorite - MongoDB. Elasticsearch and the ELK stack, along with containerization are his current "shiny new pennies".

After hours, Jon enjoys theatre, fishing for smallmouth bass on the Great Lakes, and being a "horse show Dad" to his 17 year-old. He is currently a Senior Software Developer at Ortus Solutions, after many years as a "box aficionado" and is eternally grateful for tools like Coldbox, CommandBox, and Testbox, which continue to evolve and demonstrate a bright future for CFML development.
