I worked with Doug when he was leading a team at ServiceLive. I must say that Doug is one of the best Web2.0 architects that I have had the pleasure of working with. He came into the project when it was in the design phase and he gave a very strong foundation to the entire effort. Doug's knowledge of J2EE design patterns is exceptional and so is his ability to grasp the business intent behind a project. he has a very affable personality that helps him get along with his colleagues and team members. I would not hesitate to work with him again in the future if given a chance.
Doug architected and lead Elasticsearch based search engine implementations. Doug was passionate, hardworking and collaborative. Given an opportunity, I would like to work for him again.
Doug was our Elasticsearch consultant at Spokin. Doug got up to speed quickly with our data model, news feed and search requirements. He guided us through different implementation options, assessing thoroughly pros and cons as well as short term and long term benefits. We decided on a multi-index approach and under Doug's team we implemented in a timely manner and launched our mobile app. Doug is very professional, dependable, and goes above and beyond for his clients.
Doug knows Elastic. Very well. He helped us build out a very large ~200 node cluster to process mass amounts of data quickly & efficiently. It was great to work with Doug and I hope paths cross again on a future project.
We had a critical project based on Elasticsearch, key to the success of our company. Brought Doug in to architect a solution and address critical needs - he delivered. Doug understands the ELK stack.
We're close to having a generally available product and could not have come this far without his understanding of the ins and outs. Total professional, easy to work with, and clearly made a stamp on our road map - do it again in a heartbeat.
