Data Engineer and Software Engineer in New York
Daniel Vimont has recently taken a dive into the deep end of the Big Data pond, first by becoming an active committer to the Apache HBase project, then with the beta release of his ColumnManager for HBase™, which brings missing metadata management options (standard in other DBMS systems) to HBase. The latest chapter of his career is unfolding right now in New York, as Daniel participates in the Insight Data Engineering Fellows program.
This marks a vigorous comeback to the data & software engineering world following a seven-year sojourn spent getting his Masters degree in Education (to complement his MBA), and working as a teacher (in international schools in China & Japan) and audiobook narrator.
Prior to that, Daniel spent over a decade at Treehouse Software, engaged not only on the technical side in design, development, and project-leadership of their flagship data-migration product suite, but also as a lead evangelist and educator for the technology, addressing groups both large and small on sales tours and in customized training sessions.
In a recent attempt to build up his "full stack" chops, Daniel engaged in a brief study of the Ruby language and Ruby-based server platforms, ultimately building the new "Librivox Explorer" website to serve the listeners and audiobook-creators of the Librivox collection of public domain audiobooks.
Where does he go from here? Well, he’s looking to springboard from the Insight program into a position as a Data Engineer with a company doing interesting things in the northeastern U.S.
Stay tuned! This is starting to get interesting!!
