Leadership

I've successfully lead teams small and bigger (~15 people). I've also been through the growth process to get from a small team to a larger team and the challanges involved therein. These challenges often revolve mostly around humans, communication and processes. I'm also well aware of the challenges involved in taking a problem, exploring viable solutions and then implementing them.

How I might help you:

Web Application Performance

Performance and particularly benchmarks are a passion of mine that I write and talk about. Just one of the many reasons that I created the premiere Elixir benchmarking tool benchee. I'd love to help you make your server response times faster, cut down on resource usage, reduce the amount of servers you need to run and provide a snappier user experience.

How I might help you:

Open Source

I've been maintaining Open Source projects for longer than people have paid me to do programming. That means I have a very clear view of what it means to maintain an Open Source project, the common work flows, what problems you might face and what you should look out for before open sourcing something.

How I might help you:

Mentoring/Teaching

I've been coaching and mentoring in many capacities through introduction to programming workshops, weekly sessions, university courses as well as part of my daily work and one-on-ones. I can use that teaching knowledge to help your organization shine in my fields of expertise.
