Lester Martin

technology leader, trainer, architect & programmer

My 25+ years in multiple software development roles (programmer, data modeler, architect, trainer, PM, BA, manager & director) utilizing mainframe, client/server, distributed, web, e-commerce, and most recently, Hadoop & Big Data technologies to develop internal applications & external products coupled with my hands-on "player/coach" leadership style has prepared for me for challenges in the daily stand-up, the executive boardroom, and everything in between.

What I'm doing...What's next...
Leveraging all of my past experiences, I'm extremely fortunate to be evangelizing & advocating Hadoop, Spark and related Big Data technologies as a trainer & consultant with Cloudera (originally Hortonworks).A technology leadership tour of duty with an organization who can benefit from my generalizing specialists perspective and my sound leadership principles and experience.
