brocoli

Software Engineer for 5+ years at Tapps Games.

In this time, I worked on a bit of everything that touches software development here -- game core, game UI and game UI framework, internal dev helper tools, game engine, native android and iOS code, 3rd party integrations, build systems, CI code, containers, cloud computing (mostly AWS and Google Cloud), REST applications code and monitoring, NoSQL databases (deployment, monitoring and schema design), testing frameworks and tools for unit testing, code quality and architecture committees, helping develop our Kanban workflow, giving lectures about some of our frameworks' classes, the list goes on ;p

I'm currently liking Node.js a lot more than I was expecting, as strange as that may sound coming from someone who likes C++ and Haskell. The thing is that even though there's so much bad Javascript code out there it's actually hard to overstate it, there's a lot of great libraries too. Node.js also provides a guarantee I don't often see in other languages and frameworks: you can't make a non-blocking operation become blocking through normal means. Dependencies on non-blocking operations are always explicit too, which is great.

Software engineering is still not a mature field, and one of my big letdowns is that people ignore academic research. Another is people inventing their own standards instead of following well-established ones.
