Hello I’m Dean Pearce, a software developer based in Ottawa, Canada. I am passionate about cloud technologies and how to scale, manage, and monitor them. I have had a life-long interest in technology and began exploring my passion for software development and design in high school. I have since obtained a Bachelor of Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics from Carleton University. I have also studied some courses and research in the Master of Computer Science program at Carleton University. I have worked professionally for various companies and am currently a Software Developer and Monitoring Tools Prime at Pythian. I am a driven and goal-oriented individual who enjoys the journey of development as much as the finished product. Outside of work, I like to experiment with hardware as well as software projects.
Some hobby interest areas include parallel and distributed computing. I am quite interested by real-time image processing and its implications in a world where always-on computing and augmented reality are becoming possible. My undergraduate thesis was a practical investigation into using existing user data and swarm information to predict paths to deliver a smoother augmented reality experience, having the most likely data ready for the user. I am also interested in the Internet of Things, how we can make our world more connected and manageable for individuals.
