Enda Farrell, Software architect for internet scaling
Enda Farrell is one of the software architects for the BBC's new technology platform. By using open source software with (almost) commodity hardware to build a new dynamic content platform, the BBC can cost-effectively and securely allow developers to build faster, better scaling and interactive applications.
Enda joined the BBC to lead the technical team for one of the main content management systems in 2006, having spent 9 years as an engineer and then architect at Sapient. In 2008 when the new platform was granted board approval, the content management team merged in with the platform team to get things going. His Mechanical Engineering degree from UCD is somewhat languishing in a box somewhere, largely unused.
