Software Architect - TECS Catalog

G2 Incorporated

Lead development of a lightweight web application to aid in cataloging of disparate structured data types. Allows a unified presentation layer such that the user never need worry about the multiplexing issues of ingesting myriad data types into a unified infrastructure. Key features include:

  • data normalization (e.g. transforming an IP from 2130706433 to 127.0.0.1)
  • primitive data validation (e.g. str?, int?, etc.)
  • user-customizable secondary predicate validation (e.g. is-ipv4?, is-time?, etc.)
  • optimized specifically for high-throughput stream processing through Storm

Have personally demonstrated this capability to multiple leadership elements within the United States Government federal sector with positive feedback. Currently used alongside the TECS ingest project to act as a knowledgebase and ontology.
