My latest project exposes a neural network model to the public internet through a Play 2 app deployed into Amazon EC2 on a Linux instance, backed by MySQL hosted on Amazon RDS. The innerds of the Neural Network code are an extension of the suite of algorithms I have implemented over the last 10 years and which are being exploited by Clusters Ltd, in which I retain a significant interest. Putting this algorithm on the web was an exercise in learning the Play 2 framework and MySQL in RDS, but will have commercial value to Clusters.
I have formulated, managed and maintained requirements, development, build, QC and release strategies in both small skunk-works and large multi-site 24/7 development environments. I have seen all aspects of software product development from conception through high growth to maintenance and escrow.
I have made a point of recruiting the best possible people from the widest set of backgrounds and forming cohesive, productive, stable teams.
I have worked in small teams and run large ones. I have worked in and around a variety of project management styles from benevolent dictatorships through old fashioned Project Management to Scrum/Agile/XP methodologies.
I am named as inventor on numerous patents in US, Canada and Europe and hold several personal applications.
