Hi, I'm Dustin Getz

I'm an independent software researcher specializing in data intensive user interfaces.

  • I am the founder of Hyperfiddle, a RAD markup language for data intensive applications. Deliver minimum viable web UIs with precision, and in as little effort/risk as possible.
  • I work on Photon, a distributed and reactive dialect of Clojure/Script with compiler-managed network. Photon is interesting because it can express a client/server web application as a single distributed process (not two processes). Imagine React.js but full stack, incremental view maintenance all the way from database views to DOM views, as one streaming computation.
  • Previously, I managed a team of 10 responsible for a HIPAA-compliant cloud application that measures data quality (integrity, anomalies, bugs) in Medicaid records as they flow through private -> state -> federal data warehouses.
