I do this in my "free-time", not as a representative as any company or my employer. All views and opinions expressed are my own.

tea me

B.Sc. in Software Engineering and Computer Science from Rose Hulman Institute of Technology

Currently in the Big Data + NoSQL industry, Hortonworks, Cloudera, Confluent certified.
Hadoop since 2014, Kafka+Confluent ecosystem in 2017.

Have dabbled in Android (2013) and fairly large Java applications.
Occasionally, I'll do small scripting in Python, though Golang scripts also seem really useful because running pip everywhere is a nightmare.

I have some understanding of DevOps as well (networking, provisioning, etc). Fan of Ansible over Puppet & Chef.

Random facts: I make cricket noises; never played the sport. Never seen a James Bond film; 007 just had a nice ring to it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

1. Please only connect with me to do exactly that; I kindly ask that you not ask for help on what you should be posting on StackOverflow instead. Same applies for my email, if you can find it. You may tag me in a comment to get my attention.
