Currently a software engineer at an early stage startup setting the stage for a positive and productive devops culture. Previously I was a VP of engineering at Novus and let 2 small teams at previous startups before that.
Scala, Groovy, Java, Haskell. Focus currently is Groovy but I have a strong bias to typed, functional languages (for sanity's sake).
Leadership - specifically tools to aid in fostering autonomy without sacrificing collaboration and eschewing negative team behavior.
Architecture, distributed systems, functional programming, positive culture nurturing. Reluctant to share; I'm here to learn first.
Git because it's distributed and I am comfortable enough with its quirks. Currently using Mercurial so we'll see in a month or so if my preference shifts.
