I am a Java technologist who specializes on server side architecture & design. I have been with Personal Capital close to 2 years now and have been intimately involved with the continuous evolution of the server side components.
Personal Capital Engineering is a group about how we can use technology to bring order to the chaos of finance.
It's a group for mobile, web and back-end developers and designers to learn and share their knowledge of building large, multi-client cloud-based systems.
Things like architecting single page apps, advanced charting for mobile and Amazon's simple notification service are par for the course, which will typically be a two part talk complemented by food and drink.
At Personal Capital we have developed clients for web, iOS and Android supported by a lean Java stack and cloud based back-end in Redwood City and want to jumpstart a more collaborative tech community here. Our engineering blog is here: http://techblog.personalcapital.com/
