Expert Overview

Tech Lead

Tim McGilchrist began his career as a mere midshipman, with some experiences in the exotic lands of Erlang, Lisp and OCaml. He developed a liking for the rough sailor life, strong types and a tot of rum. He quickily progressed to more daring exploits in distributed systems and contrarianism which gained him the promotion to lieutenant. After some gruelling service where he was blockaded at Brest using un-mentionable non-FP languages, he was offered a promotion to Master and Commander of Big Data at Ambiata. Once there, he met a number of gizzled Haskell verterans and went to work on special operations in infrastrure, machine learning and big data. After the Ambiata crew dispanded he continued operations in machine learning and big data using OCaml and Haskell in the area of high finance and brigandry.

He brings before you the tales of an adventurer in the wild lands of Real Life Functional Programming.
