Big Data, 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 Spark and Hadoop: Sqrrl (Accumulo underneath) and IBM BigInsights (Big SQL and HBase). Previously I was doing web dev with D3.js, Node.js, Express.js, Python, Bottle.py, MySQL, Apache httpd, and playing with AngularJS although I never ended up using it in a project – can you believe that?! 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 R, Java, Google AppEngine, AWS, GraphViz, IBM Streams/SPL, Oracle OEP, DynamoDB. I've read books about Heroku, Neo4j, and MongoDB but I never got around to actually trying them out.
Current interests/learning: Spark, React, Docker, Swift2
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
