I've helped launch several React/Flux based applications for VC funded startups and larger companies alike. I am also an open source contributor on the subject, for both committing to existing React/Flux projects and also creating new libraries.

One of the top 25 most influential Scala developers on GitHub (per https://github.com/floydsoft/the-most-influential-developers-on-github). I've used Scala as my core language to solve problems in the domains of natural language processing, stream processing, machine learning, and general computing.

I have oodles of experience at the data center level, with things like colocation, networking, and setting up redundant/distributed data center architectures. Server hardware is also another speciality and I have hand built hundreds of servers for companies getting off more costly solutions like AWS. Also well over a decade of experience on the server admin end of things as well for both Linux and Unix (though primarily Ubuntu/Debian these days). Additionally, I have expertise in a myriad of tools (e.g. Ansible, Vagrant, Docker, Xen) over the years to scale systems with millions and millions of users. One of the more recent interesting examples would be a dervitive of this open source project I created called Canvas LMS Cloud (https://github.com/rockymadden/canvas-lms-cloud). The Canvas LMS (https://github.com/instructure/canvas-lms) is a vertically scaling architecture out of the box. I worked with a company that had clients like Walmart (~800k employees). The challenge was leveraging the Canvas LMS and making it horizontally scalable. Typically you can get ~75,000 users with Canvas with some of the best hardware you can throw at it, as many universities can atest. We were able to successfully scale well beyond 1 million users with my solution.

I served as SEO strategist top 250 trafficked websites in the United States (i.e. sites with hundreds of millions of users per year). I've worked directly with Google, Yahoo, and Bing. I also have several data centric properties which pull in millions of users a year and large amounts of passive income (i.e. 60k+/yr).
