Picture of me

This is the home page for Steven Reynolds. I am a Software and Project manager living in Houston, TX. I currently work at INT, a software company specializing in graphics libraries and enterprise viewers for the energy industry.

My github account is stevenreyn. My main project there is RegionViewer. This project exports a graph of objects on the Java Virtual Machine to a graph file. This project allows you to visualize the object graph as operations are applied. The graph is very enlightening for purely functional data structures. I have used this code for some of my talks/papers.

I am a member of the Clojure Houston User Group . In the past, we met on the fourth Thursday of each month.

Here are a few talks that I have given — some are recent and some are less so.

INT: Seismic Data Visualization Platform Designed for Cloud This is a presentation on IVAAP that I did with AWS for “This is My Architecture Series” in 2020.
Intro To Julia: A Great Language for Data Analytics Julia is a super interesting technical computing language. A talk that I gave at Houston TechFest 2015.
Immutable Collections from Scala and Clojure Immutability provide some special benifits as well as some performance challenges that I find interesting. A talk that I gave at JavaOne 2013.
Clojure Collections Clojure is a new Lisp for the JVM with very special support for concurrency. The talk focuses on how purely functional collections work. From Houston Techfest 2011.
A Brief Introduction to Scala Scala is a new language for the JVM combining functional and object oriented styles. From JavaOne 2010 and Houston Techfest 2009.
Java Scenegraph The scene graph library is used by JavaFX to draw graphics. From Houston TechFest January, 2009.
Performance Statistics of Java Applications Using DTrace and Chime Presentation about DTrace: a tool that allows you to gather data from thousands of probe points in the system. And Chime: a tool to graph DTrace data. From JavaOne 2007.
