Todd Nussbaum, HMB Thought Leader

 

Todd has a fondness for sensible application architecture, good UI design and likes tinkering with open source technologies. He's put that knowledge to good use over the past 20 years, speaking publicly and solving problems in many verticals. If he's not at his desk, check the local baseball diamond - there's a good chance he's out coaching his sons.

 

What is your favorite thing about working at HMB?

The culture - HMBers are helpful and genuinely want to make the business successful.  There’s a strong desire to learn, both at the technical level and on how to do things better as an organization.

What’s the most important thing you’ve learned as a consultant?

The perfect is the enemy of the good.  We should always be learning about new and better ways to solve problems, but delivering value is how our success is measured - not delivering on an arbitrary standard.

What is your favorite language to develop in?

I like a lot of the scripting languages – Javascript, Python, Ruby.  Each offers syntactic differences that solve certain problems efficiently, and experience in each causes you to think critically about problems and how to solve them.
