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 actually, which uses Accumulo underneath). Previously I was doing web dev with D3.js, Node.js, Express.js, Python, Bottle.py, MySQL, Apache httpd, and playing with AngularJS. 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 and BigInsights, Oracle OEP, DynamoDB. I've read books about Google Compute Engine, Heroku, Neo4j, Redis, and MongoDB, and I've taken a few Udacity iOS courses, but I never got around to actually trying these out (bummer, eh?).

Current interests/learning: Spark, Ionic 2, Angular 2 (of course), Docker

Open source project: Peri$scope, a tool that uses GraphViz to visualize AngularJS prototypal scope inheritance, properties, and services

First computer: Commodore64 (I still have one)

SO badge I'm most proud of: Sportsmanship
