Uncle Bob is a well-known software developer, author, and public speaker. He runs a consulting firm Uncle Bob Consulting and which is home of videos on agile software development and writing clean code, among other software topics.

He is a co-author of the Agile Manifesto and author of classics such as:
Agile Software Development: Principles, Patterns, and Practices
Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship
The Clean Coder: A Code of Conduct for Professional Programmers (my personal favorite)
Clean Architecture: A Craftsman’s Guide to Software Structure and Design.

This year is the first time that Robert Martin will speak at Laracon US, which is putting together an excellent lineup of speakers this year, including Taylor Otwell, Jason Fried, Adam Wathan, Matt Stauffer, Evan You, Ryan Singer, and Jocelyn K.
