I have extensive experience teaching computer science and software engineering to novices, and have a long background of mentoring junior software engineers. I'm passionate about computer science and its foundational mathematics and logic, as well as software engineering best practices, and work hard to inspire that passion in my students. Many people whom I have worked with have remarked on my ability to break down complicated algorithmic analysis concepts in a way that is engaging and easy to digest.
I have over 10 years of experience building large scale systems, with a focus on high performance, stability, and scalability. Most of my systems process millions of transactions a day and perform complex analysis over terabytes of working storage.
I am passionate about understanding the tradeoffs inherent in large systems, and teaching those who wish to hone this wonderful craft we call software engineering.
I also provide interview practice. I've given almost 1,000 hours of technical interviews as a lead developer and a team manager. I offer interview practice sessions to sharpen technical skills.
I have almost 15 years of experience engineering back-end, big data systems. This involves applied research in data structures and algorithms, mostly in the area of search. I'm self taught as a software engineer, which provides an unique perspective not often found in course materials or the classroom.
