about me

It's an older spelling of Diane, if you were wondering. Right now, I'm a staff engineer with Understory Weather, focusing on our infrastructure and data pipeline (Cassandra! Postgres! Spark! Kafka! SaltStack!) and developing logistics and traceability software for networks of weather stations.

I also develop software and consult as Applied Poietics, LLC. This venture's first product is ectomigo, a continuous integration module which measures and reports the potential impact of database schema changes across an entire organization.

Otherwise and previously:

  • MassiveJS -- a moderately popular open source data mapper for NodeJS and PostgreSQL
  • data architecture, programming, and process for accessibility compliance software at Deque Systems
  • web and database development, plus a stint as team lead, at what's now GTB
  • and more!
