I am always happy to meet people either in person or via Skype/Hangouts etc.
Europe, Granada, Asia
I am offering classes on Python, HPC, Pipeline Frameworks, Job Schedulers, Data Management and Processing. I teach courses online and on location. I also organize training retreats in wonderful sunny Granada.
$80 – $100 per hour
I have more than 10 years of experience training individuals and teams on Python, HPC, Pipeline Frameworks, Data Processing, Job Schedulers at all levels.
I teach courses on-premise, in a retreat-like setting in beautiful sunny Granada and live online classes.
I have trained hundreds of individuals as well as large corporate customers.
Responsible for the technical infrastructure, software development and 24/7/365 operations at the Granada branch of IRAM and its observatory at 3000 m altitude. Drastically...more evolved existing operation architecture and protocols with increased system performance and significantly reduced costs. Implemented software engineering best practises. Raised more than 1M EUR from European and Spanish national funds. Started the IRAM 30m Science Data Archive, serving the astronomical community world-wide.
Lead Software Engineer
2014 - 2016 (almost 2 years)
Lead the NextGenSuites project to perform in-flight, full workflow profiling and job scheduling optimisation for weather simulations and forecasts. The system developed is...more able to handle hundreds of thousands of jobs/day and is being used to extract more computing power from a fixed electrical power envelope.
Started and led the creation of the genomics data processing platform for Nestlé R&D world-wide. The system developed was written in Python and layered upon the HPC HTCondor...more job scheduler. The work involved managing a diverse team of scientists, designers and programmers. Substantial negotiations with stakeholders at three distinct business centres was essential to the success of the project.
Owner of the Science and Engineering Data Processing work package for both NASA Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and the NASA James Webb Space Telescope (JWST, a ten billion dollar...more project). Led the design and development of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) asteroid and comet detection and tracking system. Led the design, implementation and support of the LSST survey-telescope scheduling simulator. Designed the high-performance distributed pipeline framework NHPPS.
Launched genomics data processing platform for the largest food company in the world. Helped launch satellites in orbit at NASA. Optimised numerical weather forecast models on 200k CPU cores. Asteroid 22435 Pierfederici named in recognition of my contributions to astronomy engineering. Author of "Distributed Computing with Python", 2016 PACKT Publishing. Lived in more than twenty cities, in seven different countries.
