Top Lisp Developers of June 2017

Lead Engineer at Hootsuite

Helping build the best Analytics product out there. Backend developer at heart. When not on the job, I try to follow the latest in functional programming and whether the Lakers are ever going to make the playoffs again. I can help you achieve your goals and become a better developer in the process.

Let me help solve your toughest problems.

I pride myself on my ability to write solid, well documented and fully tested software. With the projects that I have worked on, my software has not only needed to hold up to use by its users, it has also needed to be able to withstand scrutiny in court. As a result, I take writing quality code very seriously. Over the last few years I have worked on creating a platform to revolutionize the way that investigators (of all kinds) explore unstructured data, primarily text documents. I did this by taking advantage of the latest technologies and techniques in information retrieval and natural language processing. I also created a simple yet powerful language that allows investigators to ask deeper questions of the data. The end result of all of that effort is a system that allowed a forensic accounting team, of just two people, to go through a collection of over 500,000 documents and find emails that allowed them to receive $4,000,000 in damages for their client. The original target was only $250,000.

Teaching Assistant at Lighthouse Labs, Full-stack Web Developer, Consultant

I'm a full-stack web developer, software architect and generalist web consultant with 10 years of professional experience helping clients build successful products, optimize their business operations, and promote themselves online. Currently a lot of my work time goes into teaching at Lighthouse Labs, a web development bootcamp program in Vancouver, BC focused on full stack web development in Javascript and Ruby. I'm an expert in semantic and responsive web development, scalable software architecture and cloud-based integrations. I've developed successful e-commerce storefronts, effective marketing and content-driven sites, custom integrations with ERP, CRM, and voice/video communications platforms, and custom-built applications. I lead development teams, maintain complex codebases and optimize developer tools and workflow. I favour lean processes, rapid prototyping and iteration, continuous delivery and measurable results. I'm a big fan of open source software and philosophy. I love working with Ruby, Python and NodeJS on the server—I've been using Rails since v1—and building rich front-end applications with e.g. AngularJS and Backbone. I've also had a long-time attraction to functional programming. I like to automate all the things, from provisioning to continuous testing and deployment. I'm a specialist in service-oriented architecture, building and integrating web APIs and developing performant, scalable applications. I'm a proponent of TDD and other agile practices and outspoken when it comes to clean code and managing technical debt. My colleagues have sometimes called me opinionated—as a compliment. A safe space for free, honest and direct communication often makes the difference between a mess and success, and I'm vocal when I see an issue, or an opportunity. I believe mutual respect, not authority, is what drives effective collaboration. I lean towards the unconventional. I require a steady diet of challenge, agency and ownership in my work. I like to work with people I can relate to: who are flexible but responsible, who prefer pragmatism over protocol, creativity over stricture, who are overall both professional and authentic.

A tiny mouse, a hacker.

Besides my day-job, I participate in open source and free software projects, and aim to expand towards mentoring and freelancing, to keep a nice balance between work, and hobbies (where mentoring and freelancing are the hobbies, on topics as different from my day job as possible, to have a little variety).

Ruby developer/Ruby teacher

My name is Federico. I've been a Ruby developer since 2011. In the middle of 2016 I decided to shift my career towards education. I've taught Ruby on Rails in two opportunities (I wrote and taught a course) and I'm currently working on a Ruby course, a Roda course and a Roda book.

Full stack web developer

I have over a decade of experience working as a full stack web developer. I love programming in JavaScript, Go and Perl and I'm very well versed with their development ecosystems. I use Linux daily at work, as my desktop computer too. I have a good combination of software programming skills with some DevOps experience too.

Founder of

I'm always trying to find a balance between "perfect" and "should be done". Have great listening skills which helps be better understand customers.

My Experience

I am currently working on my Master's Degree in Computer Science, and I have industry experience through multiple internships I have had in the past. I understand programming on a theoretical level and a practical level. I have knowledge of various topics such as Functional Programming, Object-Oriented Programming, and Web Development. I have experience programming with many languages such as JavaScript, Scala, Java, C++, and C. I would like to pass on some of my knowledge to others.
