Principal Software Architect

Douglas McPherson has spent most of his career in the wireless telecom industry developing software for wireless base station and mobile chipsets. He has worked for Bell-Northern Research and Texas Instruments among others, designing and implementing many generations of cellular technologies. He has been a representative in the international standard organizations governing wireless systems technologies. Recently he has been the principal architect at start-up AirHop Communications, where he has designed and implemented AirHop’s system for a massively scalable LTE optimization network. A long time student of functional languages, he was thrilled to be introduced to Scala and Akka by Martin Odersky et. al. in the first series of Coursera classes, and to be able to apply these technologies to his project at AirHop. Most recently, he has joined Lightbend as an Enterprise Architect.
