Improving broadband internet infrastructure in the area is the focus of the Burnet County Democratic Club meeting Tuesday, April 19. Herb Krasner, a software consultant and former University of Texas faculty member, is the guest speaker.

People may attend the 11:30 a.m. meeting remotely via Zoom or in person at 218 Main St. in Marble Falls. Guests are invited to stay for tacos after the presentation.

“We all know that broadband in Burnet County is spotty at best,” said club Vice President Mary Thompson. “Herb will educate us on how we can help Burnet County improve broadband infrastructure under the federal Build Back Better Act.”

Krasner is a retired UT professor of software engineering with a long list of accomplishments, according to a club media release. He has written and published more than 55 widely read and referenced articles and book sections. He founded the Software Quality Institute at UT and served as director and chairman. 

In 2017, Krasner worked with the Texas Legislature to write and pass a new law requiring enhanced measurement and reporting on large IT projects in state agencies, the release continued. Most recently, he created and taught a class to elementary school students on how computers work.
