Francis ShanahanI’m a technologist, generalist, and chronic tinkerer. If it involves electrons, I’m interested.

I have ~13 years of industry experience and have led several large-scale engagements for Fortune 50 companies through full project life-cycles.

I’ve spent the last 5 years on Wall Street where in my day job I design/architect software systems for a large financial firm and lead a UI Framework team.

I’ve written a bunch of articles which’ve been published in both Paper and Online media including Microsoft’s MSDN website. I’ve developed software from every angle, product and project development including framework development. I’m also a pretty good facilitator.

In 2007 I wrote a book on web services, Ajax, JSON and Mashups entitled Amazon.com Mashups which you can find on Amazon.
