Full-stack web apps, multi-threaded (near) real-time server apps, embedded software. Yeah, I've been writing software a long time, and I love it. Currently I'm working with Hadoop: Sqrrl (Accumulo underneath) and IBM BigInsights (Big SQL and HBase). Just before that I was doing web dev with D3.js, Node.js, Express.js, Python, Bottle.py, MySQL, Apache httpd. For many years I programmed almost exclusively in C++ (some C++11, some Boost) and Perl (I much prefer Python now). I've dabbled with Java, Google AppEngine, GraphViz, IBM Streams/SPL, Oracle OEP, DynamoDB, R. I've read books about Heroku, Neo4j, and MongoDB but I never got around to actually trying them out.
Current interests/learning: Docker, React, responsive design with Twitter Bootstrap
Open source project: Peri$scope, a tool to visualize AngularJS prototypal scope inheritance, properties, and services
First computer: Commodore64 (I still have one)
SO badge I'm most proud of: Sportsmanship
