Software Engineer
HP & HPE - Cloud R&D Development - Roseville, CA
July 1, 2014 - October 28, 2016

I implemented a multi-product focused build system using Node.js and Gulp, deployed on Linux. This enabled my team and I to deliver distinct sets of plugins for multiple products. Each product may have a slightly different set of features and functionality based on included plugins, which also enabled multiple teams to deliver independent and disjoint plugins without conflict.

On a daily bases used KVM virtualization to stand up cloud on six or more VMs with several virtual networks.

Using Python deployed on Linux I implemented a system that can deliver plugins post install; these optional packages can provide both back end plugins and front end plugins to deliver additional functionality.

Implemented, using Angular and JavaScript, a first time cloud installer wizard with more than ten steps and a complex network configuration validation.
