About Andrew

Currently working on MVP for a product based around OpenCV, node.js & a varied client side JS suite (Backbone, Raphael, and a little more).
I mentioned I'm at the idea stage, but I am actually actively prototyping. However the technology has some complexity so I wouldn't call it a prototype yet, more hands on research.
Looking for a technical co-founder with similar background who is interested in contributing sweat equity for an equal share. Prefer Australia based but not greatly fussed.
Somebody from a software engineering background with solid experience, who has an awareness of agile development and startup concepts.
Comment on the skills analysis I provided: I'd like to work with somebody fairly technical, ideally with some management experience also. From my perspective, getting the MVP done is critical.
