Clayton K.

Canadian Linux Sysadmin. Debian/Ubuntu/CentOS Django Python MySQL

Beijing, China



What's the difference

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!
