I’m a Distinguished Engineer at CSC and co-founder, CTO and chief architect of Infochimps, a CSC Big Data Business, the leading big data platform in the cloud. At Infochimps, a CSC Big Data Business we built a scalable architecture that allows app programmers and statisticians to quickly and confidently manipulate data streams at arbitrary scale — terabytes in size, thousands of events per second, dozens of disparate data sources. We use a mixture of Hadoop, Elasticsearch, Storm/Kafka, Goliath and other industrial-strength solutions.
As part of this work, I’ve authored several successful open-source projects including Wukong (the most-used frameworks for Ruby streaming in Hadoop); Ironfan (cloud orchestration capable of spinning up clusters large or small at the push of a button) and Configliere (ruby configuration made easy). I am also a core committer to Goliath (liquid fast concurrent web framework) and Storm (an open-source streaming analytics platform emerging as a core piece of the Big Data stack).
I am the author of “Big Data for Chimps”, a book on data science in practice for O’Reilly books (j.mp/bigdata4cbook). I have spoken at South by Southwest, Hadoop World, Strata, NIST and CloudCon, and contributed a case study chapter to “Hadoop: The Definitive Guide”.
