Welcome! You’ve found Eric Melski’s personal blog, where I share my thoughts about software development, with a particular emphasis on software build acceleration and data visualization. I’m a software developer with over 20 years of professional experience. Creating high quality, high performance software that solves real problems is my passion.
Currently, I hold the title of Lead Architect at CloudBees, where I landed after CloudBees acquired Electric Cloud in early 2019. I lead the team behind CloudBees Build Acceleration (formerly ElectricAccelerator), which accelerates software build and test processes through a combination of safe parallelization, distribution to a cluster of computers, and output caching. I’ve worked on that tool for close to 20 years, during which time I’ve worked to improve the build processes of a wide variety of small and large companies.
