The speedster. To create processes that let developers work faster, Jack worked quickly himself. In six weeks, he built a demo of the Compile to Combat in 24 Hours architecture, which lets developers use a secure cloud to build and send accredited app updates to Navy ships at sea within 24 hours instead of 18 months. Jack also led the Collaborative Software Armory, which houses preapproved, cutting-edge, cloud-hosted development tools. Colleagues say both those efforts help ensure that developers provide military service members with the latest and most secure software features, ultimately promoting national security and saving lives.
