About me  

Twenty-year industry veteran with numerous technical books, articles and conference appearances to his name. Been through a lot of different platforms: C++ (Windows and Qt), Java, .NET, iOS, Android, NodeJS. Used a lot of different data storage engines, both relational databases (Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL) and non-relational (CouchDB, MongoDB, Cassandra). Loving life in the cloud (Amazon, Azure, Google Cloud), and teaching mobile (iOS and Android) to students at the University of Washington.

Main expertise

Multi-faceted software development, ranging from architecture to slinging code, across a half-dozen platforms or more. If you're looking to build software, I know how to do it.

My biggest achievement and my soft skills

Effective communicator (Google me, watch the videos from the conferences that come up, or read the articles that appear). Seen just about everything that can happen on a project. Speak French semi-fluently. Philosopher.
