Welcome to the personal web site of Ashley Davis.
Software craftsman, author and routine dabbler in financial markets.
I have a long history in software development with many years in apps, web apps, backends, serious games, simulations and VR. I make technology work for business. I architect and build bespoke software solutions that span multiple platforms.
I have years of experience managing development teams, preparing technical strategies and creation of software products. I can explain complicated technology to senior management. I have delivered cutting-edge products in fast-paced and high-pressure environments. I know how to focus and prioritize to get the important things done.
I am a passionate technologist and agile practitioner. I have had great success with TDD and am convinced of its ability to produce better code that stabilizes more quickly while being evolved rapidly. I’m a fan of functional programming and its potential for safety, predictability & concurrency.
I contribute to open source and have founded multiple industry groups.
I’m also a keen systems trader, currently trading stocks on the ASX and building algorithmic strategies for CFDs trading.
Please find me on LinkedIn for the full list of employment history, projects and publications.
Data-Forge and Data-Forge Notebook
Read more about it on my blog The Data Wrangler.
I have plenty of other open source code on my personal Github account. Please have a browse. If something looks interesting, but isn’t well documented, please reach out and let me know about it!
I also did a lot of open-source work while at Real Serious Games, you’ll find some very useful code for working with Unity and Node.js on the Real Serious Games Github account.
I’ve created a stock market simulator called Market Wizard which has a small, but loyal following.
I use this for my own paper trading, although mostly now I do backtesting because paper trading is too slow and only useful once a trading strategy has passed through many rounds of historical and statistical testing.
I have two blogs.
The Data Wrangler is my current blog - with writings on data analysis and general coding.
What could possibly go wrong? is my older game tech blog, I no longer update this - but it’s preserved for posterity and to occasionaly remind myself of just much I have written.
