My name is Ricardo Newbery. I'm a software engineer, teacher and author with a deep background in Python-based solutions and a strong proficiency across a wide range of non-Python technologies. Welcome to my website, wherein I get to brag about what I'm doing while experimenting with some of the tools I use professionally.
I've worn many hats:
- principal software engineer for Vectra AI
- senior software engineer for Quantopian
- director of engineering for Liwwa.com
- vp of web engineering for e-Share / nCryptedCloud
- software architect for Ruelala.com
- senior software engineer for Cambridge Interactive Development Corporation
- founder and cto for Digital Visions
- contributor to the Plone CMS project
- co-author of a best selling manual for Plone
- release manager for multiple open source projects
- consultant to over 30 companies and organizations
Way back in ancient history, I was even a physics researcher, a college instructor, a progressive political activist, and a community organizer.
I still have a bit of that save-the-world spirit left in me so feel free to tempt me with a chance to contribute to a worthy cause, or even just some crass promises of fame and fortune. I'm a good listener :)
Maybe one of these days I'll actually put a blog up here...
