I am a lead software developer at ExtraHop Networks and a graduate from the University of Washington Information School. At ExtraHop I am a member of the platform team, helping add to the capabilities of the appliance and leading the creation of a REST API to expose internal metrics to customers programmatically.
After a bout of RSI I decided to look for a hobby which did not involve spending great amounts of time on a computer. In my home-shop I make tools, furniture, gifts, and home projects.
Home Automation Tinkering
Projects like CHIP and the Tiko are making IoT and home automation increasingly accessible to hobbyists like myself. I'll be posting updates on my blog as I learn and create projects for around the house.
TiddlyWiki is a personal knowledge-base I use to keep track of everything from birthday gift ideas to code samples. One of my biggest complaints however was the need to create a new Tiddler (or as I prefer to call it, Note) for each item in a checklist. This plugin solves that, keeping an entire list self contained in a single data-tiddler.
A list based browser history is really of no use to anyone. When was the last time you used yours and actually found what you were looking for? Myself and four other students at the UW spent our senior year working on a capstone project working to solve this exact problem.
The capstone project previously mentioned has introduced me to the amazing world of graph databases. Over the last few months I have taken every chance I can to work with or learn more about graph databases and their many uses. Graphs are far from new, but their potential in the software field is only finally being realized.
