Hi, I'm Delon

Picture of Delon & Jackie Newman

I've served as a "full-stack", "polyglot" software engineer, analyst and tech lead for over 20 years. I've been tinkering with computers since I was 10 years old and tinkering with programming since I was 15. I was fortunate to be able to get started professionally when I was 18 automating a data conversion job for my mother's client. Since then I've worked for various companies, but primarily, I've been a freelancer and consultant.

I enjoy solving business and organizational problems through good communication with stakeholders and just the right amount of art, science & technology. I've come to specialize in building data-oriented applications like scheduling systems, workflow systems, and form systems. I also enjoy graphic design, systems integration, automation, working with arcane data formats, and building compilers and interpreters.

I'm available to lead your software team, solve hard technical problems, advise you on technology choices, or coach your developers on best practices and tools. I'm also available for one-on-one coaching and mentoring. The technologies I currently use most are Ruby on Rails, JavaScript & Clojure, and I've been gaining experience with Natural Language Processing. If you'd like to learn more about my background please see my resume, or my LinkedIn or Github profiles.
