Fourteen years of experience in the technology field in these areas:
Formally launched AndrewEdmond.com with four clients and partnering with several dozen expert sub-contractors. Currently in the midst of several very large projects for clients, and working on some new open source technologies. Specializing in LAMP based technologies.
Recent projects include:
Another recent contract was for P2-Solutions and Wizards of the Coast (Hasbro HAS/NYSE) to optimize performance on their recently released Facebook application for Dungeons and Dragons which was failing under extreme load. Over six weeks I applied fixes to the system, database and application code that resulted in a 90% decrease in overall system load, and built an architecture for them to horizontally scale growth in the future.
As lead architect for TubeMogul products I over saw emerging technologies within the TubeMogul, Inc product roadmap. Twenty percent of my time at TubeMogul was evaluating architecture decisions, open source technologies and working in major new features into an already changing main product systems architecture. Eighty percent of my time was spent "in the trenches" coding in PHP, PERL, and C++ along with hands on performance engineering, scalable database design, caching technologies. TubeMogul conitnues to be the #1 leader in online video distribution technologies and video analytics.
