Eddy Consulting, LLC
For the past 15 years I have worked with many clients on a variety of projects. I can work in the capacity of an individual developer, team member or a team lead.
In addition to leadership and architectural activities, I program daily and keep up with the ever changing software industry to be sure I am applying the best solutions to any given project.
Partial Client List
Radian is a small, fast moving startup that sells Laser Engravers and Cutters. I manage five software projects, including two Web Applications for the control and calibration of the Laser system. I am also responsible for the successful delivery and maintanance of the products Firmaware and Fleet Management system.
C/C++, Go & Python, embedded systems and microservices.
Alchemy Networks is an indepently owned service provider. I automated the provisioning of their Private Cloud Service offering. I was an individual contributor on this project. I collaborated with another developer.
Ansible, Linux, Python, Websockets, Networking
I was hired by DirecTV (and subsequentyly AT&T) to help lead the new Software Defined Networking (SDN) team. We were tasked with replacing the companies aging production Video Distribution Network with a new modernized design. Project goals included:
- Replace aged network with modern SDN solution
- Solution to incrementally replace existing production network
- Development would build on industry standard OpenSource solutions
- Had to be Reliable and Scalable
- Linux, OpenFlow, Java and Python
Led the design and development of automated data collection for hydrological gauging stations. Data is gathered by pulling data from line of sight telemetry radios and NOAA/LRGS satellite ground stations. Data is fed to timeseries server for hydrological calculations and alert monitoring.
Timeseries database, C/C++, PHP, Python and Java.
I worked on a small team that added multicast forwarding to the Integrity RTOS kernal. Modified multicast routing daemon to run on same operating system allowing the product to serve as the foundation for a military grade network switch/router. Added IPv6 Neighbor Discovery to the suite of routing protocols.
C/C++ and Network Routing Protocols; Real Time OS.
Led a project to replicate entertainment media (music, video and games) from a single media source to hundreds of inflight entertainment units with minimal redundancy. Contributed to the design and development of an inflight entertainment server.
Perl, Python, C/C++ and Java
Original member of the Multicast Routing team. Team of 12 responsible for the design, implementation and testing the complete suite of Multicast Routing protocols for the Cisco Carrier Routing System (CRS). Worked this project from early design through product launch into maintenance.
