Projects & Work

Kythe Language Server

Implemented a Language Server capable of providing local cross-references and type information supplied by Kythe’s static index. My work was incorporated into the default workstation config at Google.

Rust Indexer for Kythe

Designed and built a tool for indexing cross-references in Rust code using the Kythe knowledge graph protocols, enabling definition lookups and codesearch.

Facebook Cache Monitoring

Created a service for determining and alerting on realtime cache consistency for Facebook’s whole memcache and TAO deployment.
