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

Built an infrastructure team from scratch at Google and served as its Tech Lead. Now heading up engineering at a small startup.

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

I've worked on heavy-duty Java backends, on Ruby/Python/Perl frontends and on mobile apps, with a whole lot of JavaScript thrown in at various levels. Now I tend to develop systems by building components in Python and/or Ruby, to later redo them in Java/C if necessary for performance reasons.

What topics might you be interested in?

How to best organize a team of engineers. How to efficiently use cloud providers (mostly AWS). Distributed systems. Build and deployment techniques.

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

Nothing in particular comes to mind.

What is your favorite version control system and why?

Git, because of branching and its distributed nature.
