I believe that it's more important to solve the business challenge than proving you can write the most intricate and complicated code. With that in mind, I try to find the right tool to solve the problem by first understanding the issues, planning a solution and only then picking which technologies to use. You can also visit my website or https://www.polywork.com/ewaldhorn for some insights into what I'm busy with.

Senior Mobile Engineer
Working with C# (Xamarin), Scala, Android (Java), OpenGL, JavaScript, HTML5, CSS, Ractive.js and a touch of Swift on iOS.

Check out www.estalea.com and www.doozie.com for more about the company.

On Doozie, I worked as the lead Android developer, building a native video capture and augmentation application. By using low-level API's, I was able to capture video live and apply different filters and effects. An added bonus is the ability to pause and resume recording, from Android 4.4 and up.

One project was built on Xamarin technology, with a shared common layer between the iOS and Android clients. I was mainly involved with the Xamarin Android effort.

Most of the backend API's are written in Scala and I had to write many services required for the mobile clients as well. The admin console is a Scala Play application, relying heavily on Ractive.js for the templating.

At Estalea, each team member picks up whatever task needs doing. As an example, I ended up porting comments from MySQL to DynamoDB, an exercise that required Java and Scala skills, along with a fair bit of SQL.

I also built some tools we used for data manipulation in a technology called NW.js, which is a NodeJS and embedded Chrome setup. It's ideal for building HTML5 interfaces that need more access rights to the machine than what a traditional web application would have.

As a partially distributed and remote team, we use Slack, Skype, Trello, and Git to keep track of our work.
