About me

Industry Technology
Occupation Software Development Manager / CTO
Location Calgary, Canada
Introduction I am an experienced software development manager, project manager and CTO focused on hard problems in software development, software quality and security. For the last 20 years I have managed teams building and operating high-performance financial platforms. My special interest is how small teams can be most effective in building real software: high-quality, secure systems at the extreme limits of reliability, performance, and adaptability. Software that has to work, that is built right, and built to last. I use this blog to explore ideas and problems in software development that are important to me. To reflect and to find new answers.
Interests Building software properly, software security, project and program management, traveling and eating
