Welcome to Frederick's page. This site is always under never-ending construction. Beware of land mines and RPGs...
As a member of the UC Berkeley's Networks of Workstations (NOW) project, Dr Wong designed and developed the communication system and components for the parallel computational cluster. The system comprised of low-cost commercially available workstations known as the NOW cluster. The parallel communication system he built based on the Message Passing Interface Standard facilitated the NOW cluster to be recognized as one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world in April 1997 - the world-first low-cost workstation cluster to be listed in the TOP 500 SuperComputers. Many core technologies developed during the NOW project were eventually commercialized and became the foundations of network-oriented systems used by companies and government organizations.
Frederick has served as Director of Engineering and Principal Architect at SuccessFactors Inc. (SFSF), an online employee performance management company based in San Mateo, California. His primary responsibilities included planning, validating and executing the technological strategies for SuccessFactors. He architected and deployed a 24x7 ASP production environment using J2EE technology. Prior to SuccessFactors, Frederick served as Principal Architect and Founding Engineer at eALITY, Inc. While at eALITY, Frederick leveraged the knowledge and skills acquired in his academic career and applied them to resolving eALITY's technological challenges, creating a high performance and scalable application service cluster using J2EE technology.
Frederick's most recent work includes co-inventing two United States Patents, designing and authoring the teaching materials of a senior computer architecture course for the Open University of Hong Kong. He also designed and built an online document authoring system as well as a next-generation SAAS-based human resources service delivery system for Enwisen (acquired by Lawson, an Infor affiliate).
Dr Wong has more than 28 years of system programming and more than 8 years of scientific research experience, with a focus in the areas of high performance parallel and distributed computing, as well as system and network architecture design. Dr Wong is a professional member of Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and Computer Society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). He received a Bachelor of Arts with double majors in Computer Science and Economics, a Master in Computer Science, and a Doctor of Philosophy in Computer Science from the University of California at Berkeley.
