Overview

To leverage my skills and experience from developing web apps for monitoring at the enterprise level, I joined a peer team which had been providing the service engineers of Yahoo with a white-box solution paired with Nagios.

In a bid to move away for the costly distributed model of federated service engineering, our team was tasked with providing a centralized enterprise solution. I contributed as a front-end engineer and implemented features in a custom Perl MVC framework.
