We’re privileged to have some amazing local talent who are willing to give up their free time to speak at our meetups. We asked Derek a few questions prior to his upcoming talk on Loading Balancing ….
What motivates you to do what you do?
Really simply put, I just really enjoy working on DSP, codecs, and video problems; they involve a lot of fun maths and statistics. It’s a hobby that turned into a job.
How do you start your mornings?
I don’t! Most of my team is in New York, so I shift my whole day by around 4-5 hours. When I do get going, I grab a flat white and chill for a bit at The Exploding Bakery, then hop on Slack/IRC/whatever.
