Ruby Machine learning tools R

Remote team management and tools A/B testing techniques Modeling in NoSQL

Do you have any specific areas of expertise? Would you be willing to share it with the group?

I'm a *very* long-time web developer with a bunch of different technologies but some people still think of me as a data warehouse guy from my stint in that world. Plus I usually draw the short straw to manage the servers. I can share a lot of war stories.

What is your favorite version control system and why?

Git -- distributed teams need a distributed tool. Plus cheap branches make it easy to spin off and try new things without a lot of worry


Hi, I'm the CTO of a quiet startup in midtown. Looking forward to meeting the community.
