I am a consummate software professional. I want to deliver the best product possible using whatever tools and techniques it takes. I have a M.S in Computer Engineering from the University of Maryland at College Park and an M.S in Biotechnology from Johns Hopkins University. I am an expert in Java. I have deep expertise in the Financial and Genomics domains. I am curious about programming languages that enable to express myself naturally. I am also curious about technologies and tools (read enabling technologies and tools that support clean code and refactoring) that simplify and enable me to achieve my goal of maximizing product value.
I have honed my skills in maximizing business value and customer satisfaction. I am focused and committed to the job at hand.
I value working on products that change the world. I value working on products that are simple to use, seem to "fit" into the customers way of working and solve real problems in a delightful and intuitive way.
I dislike working on products that simply mimic existing business processes, are a pain to use and make the user feel as if they would rather get a root canal than use the software I or my team develops.
You can find all the details regarding my technical expertise in my LinkedIn profile.
I am a CSM and find Scrum to be the lightest framework for delivering real product in a fun way. If a better framework comes along, you can be sure I will hasten to adopt it:-). I am a huge proponent of XP coding and testing portions as an enabler of Scrum.
If you find any of my bio objectionable, drop me a note and I will be happy to discuss. Perhaps we will come up with a way to make products that change the world in a way that enriches our lives as well.
