As an experienced sysAdmin, i've managed several servers around the world, from USA to Hong Kong, from Spain to Brazil. During this years, i've managed to expand my knowledge to several areas of the business, mainly virtualized environments (vmWare, Xen, openvz) and cloud environments ( Linode, Rackspace, Amazon & Digital Ocean). Also, i've been working as a coder on complex backend implementations. I am the typical sysadmin that enjoy to read logs, check uptime at 4.AM and smile when server load is <1.
I am a native-English-speaking Canadian living in China, with a deep understanding of the Linux/LAMP ecosystem, and dedicated to getting the job done. Particularly strong with Amazon AWS, Django / Mezzanine, Apache/MySQL, network API communications, and back-end web application development. I usually have time to add small new projects, and software development projects. Ask me about big projects, my workload varies! http://expat-it.net/ http://blog.expat-it.net/
I have a BS degree in IT Computer Networks and I am a System Administrator, Technical Support Specialist with more than 14 years of experience, planning and implementing computer systems and networks. I have in-depth knowledge of Linux Server Administration and IT Technical Management. I have strong experience with discussion, elaboration and implementation customer requirements as well as company's needs. Demonstrate by my adeptness in Web server (LAMP) deploying, configuration, optimization, and security protection as well as Bash/Python/PHP scripting development. In addition I have extensive knowledge of Optimization and Speeding up content delivery and implemented several fully worked systems with modern cache solutions. I have strong experience with maintaining web-sites, optimize MySQL databases, customize components and layouts and implement security measures.
So I guess I can say my objective with the customer is to make their ideas a reality and introduce them to new ways of making their organization more efficient in both the virtual world and the real world. But my personal goal is to never let the technology get too far away from me, because if I do then someone else is going to take my place (and I’m sorry but I really like it in here SO IM NOT SHARING) If you want to know more about me visit my Website at: http://www.canadawebdeveloper.ca, http://dannymcguire.ardcorp.tv or http://goo.gl/NqtZz Note I’m working on my site at the moment so it will be offline for a while.. For this I have to say I been working with Microsoft and Google as an internal beta tester, I been called several times by Microsoft to join software, hardware and game developers to discuss some of the most important changes on the history of the company. And all this experience has told me that If I want to be the best at what I do, I cant just stop or be happy for having great feedback from customers or high executives, I have to push and push real hard to stay on top on technology, know it and master it before it even hits the light. Thanks Microsoft and Google for everything you have, and keep teaching me…
