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.

comment What non-theoretical, practical programming language has no reserved keywords?
Erlang is very expressive and not complex syntactically. I think all functional languages end up being more expressive with less reserved keywords.

I think the key word in your answer is complex, a sufficiently designed language should be simple, not complex.

comment How can I explain the difference between NULL and zero?
NULL is the explict LACK of data, it isn't a placeholder, it is a single solitary representation of no data.

comment Who was the first software engineer?
more lack of reading comprehension skills ... you are posting points that prove my point. Concurrent software is non-deterministic, distributed computing even more so; if you dont' understand that, you are part of the problem.

comment Can I (reasonably) refuse to sign an NDA for pro bono work?
you can reasonably refuse anything, is it reasonable for you to expect them to accept your refusal, that is another issue. Also this isn't programmer specific in any way.

comment How do people deal with Android fragmentation?
they develop for iOS and forget about Android, given the massive Apple AppStore sales ratios to Android app sales, this is actually a reasonable alternative.
