about me



code, java, scala, javascript, big data, machine learning, agile, kanban, women in tech, STEM, high performance teams

bonus random thought for the day:
“code shrapnel”

noun : sometimes the consequence of a rather hasty piece of refactoring. You end up having to tweeze out bits of code in such as way as to avoid further code hemorrhaging and even complete organ failure…



Liking: spark, elasticsearch, scala, machine learning with Professor Ng, learning in general, test driven development, mob programming, kafka, stream processing, modern agile

Loathing: elasticsearch upgrades, slow builds, complex dev-ops tasks

Haven’t quite decided: zeppelin notebooks, AWS, docker
