Hi, my name is Firecrow Silvernight. I'm a Software Engineer based out of New York City, but soon to be in Falmouth, Cornwall, UK where my wife is doing her masters program at Falmouth University
(check out her work at http://silvernightcreations.com).
Writing code in a collaborative team is my craft and passion, both keeping the
perspective to do it right the first time, and strategically managing timelines in a way that the steps build upon

Code examples: https://github.com/firecrow
quart: A toy language which is an example of how I prefer to organize behavior and implement dynamic typing for objects in a simple static language (C).
crowx: Error reporting macros to simplify error checking in order to maintain clear code not littered with if statements.
Badges Team Building Exercise: https://havenlife.com/blog/remote-team-building-exercises
A meeting format I created to award badges between team members which I hosted for 15 of 18 product teams
at Haven Life.
NetBSD Network Driver I ported over from another *BSD: https://man.netbsd.org/NetBSD-7.0/alc.4
Around 2013 I purchased a laptop with the latest Aetheros network driver which was not yet supported by NetBSD, I came across a patch for another *BSD which I modified to fit the NetBSD kernel and driver specification.
Patent for HyperScroller, mobile advertising unit: https://patents.justia.com/patent/10832729
I helped create an ad unit which responded to user scroll behavior by playing back and forth on a videos timeline, the product was unique enough to be awarded a US Patent.
"I have been working alongside Firecrow since I joined Haven, and no person has had a bigger impact on me in that time. To start, Firecrow is a fantastic engineer who is never afraid to tackle large challenges and is constantly looking for ways to improve the product and team processes. But even greater than his raw engineering talent is how he builds up the people around him. Firecrow is always looking for ways to get involved with his team and the entire company, taking additional roles, leading team exercises, and generally just building team coherence and camaraderie. He is a truly invaluable individual for any team to have." -- Brian (Software Engineer at Haven Life), Teammate
