At Into the Box, our aim is to provide engaging sessions and insights about ever-changing technologies. In our Speaker Blog Post Series, our aim is to provide attendees with more information regarding our team of prepared speakers. As such, we’d like to introduce you to Samuel Knowlton.

Samuel was once pulled over for speeding while wearing a kilt in a red Jeep Wrangler in Delaware! With that anecdote, we feel like we already know him better!  He is also the founder and managing director of inLeague, a boutique web application firm specializing in the management and operations of youth sports leagues and charter school admissions and lotteries.

At the conference, he will be leading the “QB For the Rest Of Us: 1.21 Gigawatts of Fluent and Functional” session on May 7th from 1:00 PM until 1:50 PM. Why should you attend, you may ask? Well, in his words, “ QB is the cornerstone not just of modern & functional query syntax, but also of cfmigrations, Quick, and never writing "sql &= sql & ' SOME MORE SQL' again!”  In regards to his favorite Box product, for him it’s  “a toss-up between Coldbox, which broke us of many bad habits, and Quick, which made us love ORM again!”
