I have started using Linux since 2001 and I work professionally as a Linux administrator since 2004. I have worked for small companies but with big requirements. I have great experience in all major linux services (Apache, MySQL, Bind, Postfix, Dovecot etc) and in network administration using Linux (iptables, routing etc), Mikrotik and Cisco devices.

Software Engineer

United States - Last active: 15 days ago - Tests: 5

Since graduating from the University of Washington I’ve worked in the industry as a software developer for the last seven years. I’ve worked on a large array of individual and group projects in a variety of roles. The majority of my past projects have revolved around a very large Java based SAAS application using Servlets/JSPs, Oracle SQL, HTML, CSS, etc. I’ve also spent some time developing interactive visualizations in Raphael.js for the web and OpenGL/Core Graphics for iOS apps. I’ve built several iOS apps, two in-house enterprise distribution style and three for the App Store, using Xamarin.iOS and RubyMotion. I’ve spent the last year and half or so working exclusively on a Ruby on Rails based web application. I love learning new programming languages, frameworks, and technologies.
