I am a software developer somewhere in California. I've been in a lot of interesting back corners of the software world, from web spiders to machine learning to GIS to web frontend development. My willingness to deal with C++'s head-punching, ridiculous stupidity has taken me to interesting places, as has my ability to be super productive in Python.

I've also touched JVM languages, .Net languages, you name it. If it's somewhat mainstream I probably have used it enough to have formed an opinion on it.

My singular hobby is editing this profile. When I'm not answering questions or writing code I vacuum seal myself in a plastic container to lengthen my shelf life.

comment What are the limitations of using MySQL with ArcGIS?
I worked at Esri at the time. MySQL's spatial features were a joke. If at this point if they were adding/augmenting geodatabase functionality then MySQL would definitely be a contender.

comment What are the limitations of using MySQL with ArcGIS?
This is absolutely untrue with modern versions of MySQL—while not as rich as PostGIS, MySQL can support these operations now. Not so much a few years ago, and certainly not through ODBC.

comment How to manually break statement execution in Python window of ArcMap?
The ArcGIS Pro Python window lets you stop Python code while it's executing, due to technological limitations the ArcGIS 10.X window can't.

comment ArcMap Crashes when inserting new feature in multi-Threading add-in
You may need to disconnect the layer on the main thread then? Maybe there's a schema lock. What's the debugger telling you?
