Technology means transforming what is

  • Dayo

    App store button

    Daily weather on your lockscreen

    Tells you the weather like a human does, by the time you wake up.

    Lead developer and co-product lead. Still actively working on this. Used it to learn Parse platform. Experimenting with algorithmic content generation and the lockscreen/push notifications as content medium.

    Tech I used: obj-c, js, Parse service

  • Underground

    App store button

    Pseudonymous group messaging app: "Share thoughts with people like you"

    Co-developer, co-creator. A labor of love, but never clicked with users. Biggest rails backend I've built, with decent testing framework and worker queue. There’s lots here that I’m still waiting for a more prominent product to deliver.

    Tech I used: obj-c, rails

  • eHighlighter

    App store button

    eBook-style highlighting for real-world books

    Updated this app to address 2 years of UX/UI issues and feature requests. Used it to learn ios. The big stumbling block to this being better is the so-so proprietary OCR we’re using.

    Tech I used: obj-c

  • Hudson River Trading

    Algorithmic trading

    I was an algorithm developer, coder and trader for 6 years, as the company went from 10 people to 100+. I learned a huge amount about problem solving and data science, and how much more important steady application of intelligence is to hard problems than genius. I give myself a B at this job — i was never that into finance, but loved working with smart people.

    Tech I used: c++, perl, python, shell scripting
