Rebuilt the www.slated.com tech team in LA (was NYC). By 2016 we'll be a TDD driven, agile team, and the site will be transformed from backend "full page load" delivery to REST API with Angularjs+Materials.
That covers 2014-2015...
My hammers and screwdrivers are:
- Jade, Stylus, Coffeescript, Angular+Jquery+Bootstrap+Materials
- Python, Django, ~12 key Django packages, Celery, PostgreSQL, Memcache, Ngninx
- Fabric, Buildbot, Puppet, Jenkins, Newrelic, AWS/EC2, Joyent
- C/C++, when it's a driver or just has to run fast
Rod has a deep and thorough knowledge of the entire stack, from web front-end to back-end as well as desktop. He is particularly thoughtful in designing architecture that is scalable, flexible, and dynamic. Rod is also a very nice guy who is easy to work with and works well as a leader and mentor for more junior engineers.
