Wacku Ug Hamburg, Germany 2011 - Present

Wacku is my software development agency. I built a network of great people and we've staffed and supported many many projects big and small.

We're a collective that has changed configuration and size over the last 4 years, but we've always been a group of at least three, sometimes growing as large as 7 to staff longer, more challenging projects.

Speach Media GmbH Hamburg, Germany 2010 - 2011

Speach Media's main project is Freiminuten.de; Acting as CTO, I ensure that we make the correct technical decisions, and keep the platform moving in the right direction. I am also their only developer. (that part isn't so great!)

I took over the project after the initial 8 week inception phase, after 12 months of feature development and paying-back of technical debt we were able to focus on a variety of improvements to the backend APIs which enable the platform to be autonomous, and run with almost no human interaction.

The stack is Ruby on Rails, Resque, Elastic Search, Sinatra, Middleman, SASS and HAML. Running on top of a Chef managed Linode cluster running Ubuntu.

Watched.it Limited 2009 - Present

I founded Watched.it in 2009 and have been working slowly but steadily on it since then.

Acting as founder, developer, product owner, accountant, marketeer, customer, debugger, QA and designer has been tougher than I ever imagined it would be.

Watched.it works a lot like last.fm, scrobbling the TV Shows that people watch on their computers, or allowing them to manually scrobble using the web application, or via their smartphone.

Watched.it provides an at-a-glance overview of which content is available, and which contend has already been watched, allowing people to forget about ever-changing TV schedules, release delays, mid-season breaks, and more.

The side-effect of providing a useful service to TV fans, is a a valuable insight into realtime viewing patterns across all mediums, especially those often overlooked by cable rating companies.

The stack is Ruby on Rails, Sinatra, Resque, C, ZeroMQ, Backbone.js. Running in a Linode supported by CloudFront managed with Chef and Capistrano.

Watched.it is actively seeking investment, mentors and assistance to make my dream become a reality, if you are interested in working with me, investing and believing in me, and helping to make my project enter the mainstream, please contact me.
