My Core Skills
I write code
My primary passion is to write code.
I have all kinds of custom applications and utilities that I use and demonstrate. There is something magical to me about different languages and different problems to solve.
I also ave numerous applications in the Windows store. I’ve also ported Teach Kids Music to the Windows Phone Store as well.

I am an author
One of my core skills is writing about technology.
I have written numerous articles and MSDN magazine. The depth and breath articles are significant. You can see the full list of published articles here. These articles also appeared in the printed edition distributed worldwide.
I present to large audiences
I take great pride in my public presentations. I consistently get ranked as a top speaker at big events.
I am co-organizer of Bay Area Software Engineers Meetup

How I view presentations
Great presentations make the audience feel smart.
Great presentations get the audiene to take your guidance and act on it.
- Your primary job is not to make yourself look smart.

Great talks yesterday! The presentations were awesome and loved the visual examples.
Really helped me get over the fear of actually installing the HADOOP since I have avoided JAVA like a plate of cooked vegetables all my life. This was great. Good to see Microsoft embracing non-MS OS, though, I do wish that Pure-Windows based HADOOP become possible as many healthcare customers are windows shops. Though a lot of F# machine learning stuff flew over my head, the TypeProvider was really cool especially the CSV, since we use a lot of that. I also see F# is natural driver to Map Reduce so the combo of two topics was right on. I can see lot of potentials between the two.
Stayed for just the first talk, which was excellent.
First talk on Hadoop, Hive, and Pig was excellent! Second talk regarding F# and Machine Learning was amazing! Thanks!
As a guy who basically likes cooked vegetables (not too cooked though). I can’t remember if Bruno built hadoop on windows or did it on a linux VM. I remember him running YUM which I think means he was doing it on unix. Searching around, I see lots of windows projects for hadoop in which case I would consider hadoop native windows, even though it is using Oracle’s Java libraries (JVM). I have so many native windows app now that are written in Java and reference the Java JVM that I totally consider that native windows. I’m guessing hadoop will be that soon if it is not already.
And of course, thanks to the speakers Bruno and Mathias for taking there precious time to present to us all.
Great talks and demo!
