Presidential Campaigns & Immutable Infrastructure

Hillary for America was arguably one of 2016’s largest startups. It was in the news every day, raised billions of dollars, and grew at an incredibly fast rate. There was even a very splashy exit. But what isn’t often talked about is the technical infrastructure behind it. Over the course of...

No Microservice Is an Island

You worked at Capital One first and then switched over to Square. So what were you working on at Capital One?
