Director of Technology

A software developer since the mid-80's I ran a successful consulting business for 15 years. I have worked for everything startups and international companies that did billions of dollars a quarter in profit.

As a technology consultant I made a career out of finding the next job, learning more about my clients business than they knew and giving them direction to future successes. I have comprehensive experience with both software and hardware development companies.

I have extensive experience as a hiring manager as well, earned from years of experience building, teaching and managing creative Agile Technical teams.

Extensive Answers are in my GitHub repository

comment Why not free memory as soon as its reference counter hits zero
What is the benefit of spending time freeing memory that isn't needed immediately, freeing when it is demanded is a much more intelligent heuristic.

comment What is the purpose of the stand-up and its duration in agile methodologies?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about as lazy a question that you can ask and shows absolutely no attempt at researching before hand.
