I'm a self-motivated backend/devops-focused coder, trained as an engineer, with 8 years experience in the heavily regulated healthcare industry. I love staying up to date on the latest technologies, best practices and trends, especially in the areas of distributed architectures, automated everything, and scalability. I've designed and developed multiple systems from the ground up.
I spent many years as the sole developer for my projects, but I thrive in collaborative environments, and am now supervising other developers. My current preferred language is Node.js, but I enjoy picking up new languages, and have recently been experimenting with Go.
I've love the community aspect of open-source, from consuming vast quantities of podcasts, to attending events and conferences, to using github to clean up or rewrite various open-source tools I use.
