LEADERSHIP

think do show book
think do show by Simon Edwards
The sort of Leadership Rorie believes in is very well described by Simon Edwards in his best selling book “think do show” (pages 87-88) when he says…

“Rorie was relentless in his intention to make Hailo a centre of Engineering excellence. Rorie not only wanted to build the best software organisation possible, he also wanted all of Hailo to work closely together…Rorie is the kind of boss you really want to work for, demanding results but always in your corner…”

Golang was also used to create the GRO.TEAM Neural Network that is delivering competitive advantage to GRO.TEAM’s SEO clients

Although proficient in a number of technologies including HTML, CSS, JavaScript, WordPress, Elementor, Python, Kotlin, PWA Progressive Web Apps Rorie has been coding in Google Go | Golang since it was chosen as the primary language for the global micro services re-platform at Hailo in 2016.

Golang is easier to write and manage than Java, it runs faster than almost everything except C/C++ and because it scales across the multiple cores/CPUs in a server “out of the box” you can save money by using less servers.

Go is object based (rather than object orientated like Java) and has none of the fiddly memory management and pointer things you need to keep on top of in C++.

Because it compiles down to a binary executing it is as simple as deploying a file to a server and running it. There are no libraries, frameworks or interpreters to worry about. Go/Golang is state of the art for use cases like backend APIs and micro services frameworks where you want low response times and low hosting bills, but it isn’t really designed for the user interface layer…JavaScript is eating that particular world.

TESTIMONIALS​

AI MACHINE LEARNING NEURAL NETWORKS APPLIED TO SEO

Rorie's Third Year Project At University

neural network
The Use Of Neural Networks For Financial Time Series Prediction

Rorie has been building and training machine learning neural networks since his university days and this artificial intelligence approach is now delivering some very interesting results in the field of SEO (Search Engine Optimisation).



About two years ago Rorie had a moment of clarity and thought “Rather than try to reverse engineer the complex and constantly changing Google search results algorithm why not train a neural network on its live results data instead?”



So that is exactly what he did and after eighteen months of training and iteration the neural network is now producing some startlingly accurate SEO results…see GRO.TEAM’s Guerilla SEO package and Rorie’s Medium article HERE

GROWTH HACKING

To Growth Hack is to take a different approach.

The usual Sales, Marketing, Product, Technology and Operations silos are broken down and a cross functional and holistic approach is taken to move the needle on one very carefully chosen growth metric.

“If the growth benefits of a growth idea massively outweigh the costs and/or time to implement it then we are growth hacking…”
