About Brian

I'm a 3-time product manager, algorithm nerd and former developer. Currently spending my time learning a variety of deep learning & machine learning techniques, new/interesting business models, game theory, human behavior and more (bjpcjp.github.io, if you want to see the list.)

- Domain knowledge: semiconductors, smartphones, IP, software, machine learning
- B2B product management
- SaaS growth principles: MVPs, cohorts, CAC/LTV, landing pages, virality

When necessary, I still write my own code. I use both GitHub and BitBucket.

Reasonably competent:
- Ruby/Rails/Jekyll, Ubuntu Linux, Python, Jupyter, Git/GitHub

Still dependent upon manuals, but comfortable:
- R, SciKit-Learn, CSVKit, SciPy, NumPy

Many years ago:
- C++, Forth, Assembly (x86, 68K, RTX20xx), Common Lisp

At night:

Any one of 50 blogs in one window. Code in another. A Twitter stream in a third. (Subject to whether a college football game is on television.)

Quote

"Men wanted: For hazardous journey. Small wages, bitter cold, long months of complete darkness, constant danger, safe return doubtful. Honour and recognition in case of success."‚Äč - Sir Ernest Shackleton, 1914
