My name is Lewis Cowles. I am a software engineer, former digital architect & CTO, current small company owner.
My primary skill is as an expert in ensuring software helps people.
I help people in businesses to effectively use technology to engage users, automate the mundane, fix the broken, and implement features to achieve their end-user's goals.
It is my deeply held belief that people who are helped, are the easiest to sell to! It is reciprocity in action.
- I have 19 years professional experience.
- I have run a business I bootstrapped with no loans or investment, with staff. I helped develop their skills. I can help you grow.
- I focus on repeatable outcomes, de-risking, not throwing it all at the casino of hope.
- I learn standards that facilitate technologies so that I can reason about them.
- I can relay techniques, concepts & approaches in a variety of ways to try to help people understand technology.
- I work with a range of technologies from web & e-commerce, to IoT & server infrastructure.
- I am multi-disciplinary, with skills including operations, security, performance & scaling for growth.
- I am obsessed with practical efficiency.
- I am passionate about using technology as a tool to help people, so I care about inclusivity, accessibility, and rights.
- You have tried the rest, and that did not work. You are willing to listen and get involved. Together, we can make the bad things go away.
