Average rating



Alistair Croll has been an entrepreneur, author, and public speaker for nearly 20 years. He’s worked on a variety of topics, from web performance to big data, to cloud computing, to startups, in that time. In 2001, he co-founded web performance startup Coradiant. Since that time, he has also launched Rednod, CloudOps, BitTorrent, Year One Labs, the Bitnorth conference, the International Startup Festival, and several other early-stage companies. 

Alistair is the author of three books on web performance, analytics, and IT operations, including "Lean Analytics," a book on using data to build a better business faster that's due out in March from O'Reilly Media. He lives in Montreal, Canada, and tries to mitigate chronic ADD by writing about far too many things at "Solve For Interesting": Alistair chairs O'Reilly's Strata Conference.
