Tell us about yourself (professionally). What technical leadership experience do you have already?

I use the mainstream ones, NUnit for .NET, unittest2/nose for Python, they automate the mundane out but I can't say they alone can help with the most difficult task I usually see, testing high performance "fat client" trading applications.

What languages/frameworks do you program in (Java, .NET, PHP, Ruby, etc.)? What is your favorite, if different?

.NET, Python, C++ at work, PHP for some personal projects.

What topics might you be interested in?

Massively parallel software architecture, low-latency applications, efficient UX and data visualization for traders and their support partners (MO, etc.).

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

Automated and unit testing, including "fat client" apps; highly parallel .NET applications; efficient collaboration environments for distributed software development teams.

What is your favorite version control system and why?

Mercurial, because it does everything I need. Git is also good. Subversion used to be my favorite, I even contributed a tiny bit, but its time has passed.


I own a trade capture and position management application for MBS/ABS deployed on ten trading desks in Bank of America Merrill Lynch. My aspiration is to organize highly efficient software development teams while keeping the hands on skills.
