I am a software developer who has been developing full time for the past 10+ years, and have been programming for even longer. During his employment as a software developer, I started as employee number 12 of a small start-up, which had been acquired twice, to end up as a part of a large enterprise scale software firm. I worked with that group for over 9 years, and experienced hard-learned lessons of how seemingly small decisions can create long term drag on a codebase.
I have worked on applications in a variety of domains including: banking, food and beverage production, healthcare, education, and real time bidding for online advertisement, working in languages such as Java, C#, VB.NET, Ruby and Erlang, as have been learning Clojure in my free time.
I am also the creator, host, and producer of the podcast Functional Geekery, a podcast about functional programming covering topics across multiple languages.
