As a startup co-founder and CTO, I have a number of responsibilities for my business, to quote Eric Reis (http://www.startuplessonslearned.com/2008/09/what-does-startup-cto-actually-do.html), one of these is “platform selection and architectural design”.
I have invested very heavily in this area since starting my journey with Huffle, and this blog is really to capture my thoughts and decision process made along this journey.
As you’d expect my role is currently very varied – I come from a financial technology background, and right now my role is covering all sorts of things, including:
- Model development/implementation
- Platform architecture
- Server side and front end development (full-stack appears to be the buzzword doing the rounds these days…)
My posts will likely dip into all of the above, some will be ad-hoc notes, others more in depth discussing strategic directions we’ve taken along the route.
