I have been developing web applications since 1996, back when they were called "shopping carts." After helping build a successful ISP (acquired by Highspeed), I spent four years growing a software development company in the aerospace industry (acquired by Mercer). Hungry to deploy web applications at scale, I joined Yahoo! where I worked on social products (360, Groups, Open Strategy). Two years later I left to build Aardvark, which was acquired by Google in early 2010. At Google I worked to maintain the existing Aardvark application and port the UI to Google's infrastructure. I left in 2011 to start Good Eggs.
Yahoo! Application Platform:
Played an integral role in the rebuild of the frontend of Yahoo! Groups. Designed and helped implement a RESTful API, which was key to the rearchitecture of the application. Worked closely with Web Developers, Backend Engineers, Product Managers and Localization Engineers to ensure the success of the project. Designed and implemented the Foos PHP framework, which was used for both Yahoo! Groups and the Yahoo! Application Platform.
I worked hard to instill good programming practices within the CAVOK organization. Test Driven Design (TDD) was at the forefront of that effort. Unit testing, code documentation, and of course the integration of Open Source projects (where applicable) are ideas that I stressed on a daily basis.
