Pentaho Business Intelligence Plug-in

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

I hi-light this project because it demonstrates my ability to quickly grok a large unfamiliar codebase even with little documentation and to make meaningful modifications and contributions to that code. In this case I wrote a Java based plug-in for an open source Business Intelligence Suite by Pentaho Corporation. Grokking the internals of this powerful system was non-trivial but was aided by my experience as the designer of D2K, another data-flow RAD environment for data-integration and data-mining.

Intellibadge | Tracking a Major Conference

Monday, May 31st, 2010

“IntelliBadge™, an NCSA experimental technology, is an academic experiment that uses smart technology to track participants at major public events. IntelliBadge™ was first publicly showcased at SC-2002, the world’s premier supercomputing conference, in the Baltimore Convention Center. This was the first time that radio frequency tracking technology, database management/mining, real-time information visualizations and interactive web/kiosk application technologies fused into operational integrated system and production at a major public conference.”

I was involved in this project at myriad levels, including setup and administration of linux machines, integration of my collaborative video streaming software, multi-threading the application, mirroring code for this P2P architecture, and developing post-conference data analytics with custom Java-based software.
