Chris is the developer of SawSearch.
A few high points of Chris' experience in software, startups, or both:
- Created BitBoost's Python obfuscator, which protects
engineering investments by transforming Python source code into new
code that is harder to reverse engineer. Produces highly portable
output code that can be run in any Python
environment compatible with the input code,
such as CPython, PyPy, IronPython and Jython.
- Invented PawSense,
a software utility you
can install so your computer will automatically distinguish between human
typing and cats wandering around on the keyboard. This protects against cats inputting keyboard
shortcuts and incorrect data.
- Software developer #3 in CompuRAD, a medical software startup. CompuRAD was a pioneer of personal computer based teleradiology. CompuRAD did a successful IPO on NASDAQ, and eventually gave up its independent identity in a friendly acquisition/merger. One of Chris' favorite things about CompuRAD was the in-depth involvement of domain expert end users in the company. Among the practicing radiologists involved was the head of the company, Dr. Phillip Berman.
