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

No answer yet

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

Java, PHP, a bit of Ruby, Python and Cocoa/Obj-C.

What topics might you be interested in?

Technology selection. Effective hiring. Estimation. What to outsource? How to work effectively with offshore teams? Etc/etc...

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

How to structure your data to achieve the desired results: (e.g. KV, Relational, Search Index, Graph, Triples -- and tools to make scaling simpler) (and the inverse: I have this data set / search tool / graph db, etc... what cool new features does it allow me to easily develop?)

What is your favorite version control system and why?

git b/c it's really designed for loosely coupled teams, (unfortunately I'm still using it like svn)


I help early-stage startups get their development act together. I also engage with established companies to help them gather insights from their data, and tune their site search/recommendatio­n features.
