The center of a hectic newsroom in 2006 was an ideal place to begin a software career. As the only software developer on the “new media” team, I learned how to do everything by myself. Beginning with Perl and /cgi-bin/, through PHP, Python and eventually Ruby, I developed databases and interactive tools to support all manner of newsroom services and I maintained all the infrastructure to support my efforts.
Through a chance connection maintaining a debian package, I landed at RightScale at the beginning of the cloud computing revultion. At RightScale, I learned a great deal from my coworkers and developed my own reputation as a technical leader and a person with the ability to tackle difficult problems and see them through to the finish line. Our organization matured over the years and what began as a monolithic Rails application with mountains of jQuery transformed into an ecosystem of Golang microservices and disparate front end applications.
At SecureDocs, I’ve enjoyed wider freedom to make technical decisions. We’ve had great success with our new GraphQL API that I spearheaded. I’ve also enjoyed the opportunity to mentor a few interns and junior developers.
