I was the Lead Engineer at BackType before BackType was acquired by Twitter in July of 2011. At Twitter I started the streaming compute team which provides infrastructure that supports many critical applications throughout the company. I left Twitter in March of 2013 to start my own company (currently in stealth).|
I'm a strong believer in the power of open source. I created the Storm and Cascalog projects and have many other projects on my GitHub page.
I'm working on a book called Big Data: principles and best practices of scalable realtime data systems for Manning Publications.
