What excites you most about working at TriggerMesh?
Tackling cutting edge problems of the future of application design. Dealing with autonomous agents that collaborate to work through events is a tough problem. Doing it on top of Kubernetes to build enterprise products that solve real problems is super exciting. Yesterday, I took the time to write a small "Target" (aka a sink) in Python. I wanted to build some kind of a “wire tap” for our Bridges. I spent a couple hours getting a target together, using boto3 to talk to DynamoDB, brushing up on the latest cloudevents spec and "Boom", suddenly I was storing all the events from my Bridge in DynamoDB. I love moments like this, simple, enjoyable, yet rather cutting edge.
What do you do?
I am the co-founder with Mark Hinkle and product/engineering lead. Aside from the company wide work and coordination, I spend a lot of time talking to customers and partners to make sure we are working and building the right product for people. In terms of engineering, I act as our main product owner and make sure everyone has what they need to do their best work. When I have time (uninterrupted time that is) I go back to the terminal and do some small prototypes or testing.
What are some of your interests and passions?
I enjoy the outdoors. I really don't do any electronics or “geek” work as hobbies. Once I am done with work, I like to get outside. I used to run marathons, but now I hike in the mountains. I also play golf quite a bit. In the summer, I do a bit of sailing and fishing from time to time, and I love camping with minimal gear. But there are not enough days/hours in the day to do all of this. Sometimes, I just slouch on the couch and browse Netflix for 20 minutes before giving up on finding something to watch :)
