Hi! I'm the manager of the Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) Team at Stack Overflow! I've worked here since June 2013.
I've been a big fan of Stack Exchange since the start. Literally. I was listening to Joel and Mark's podcast when they were talking about this secret project idea they had. I was lucky enough to be invited into the secret beta.
What technology do I use? I like Go, Linux, Python, MacOS X, Puppet.
I used to know something about: Solaris, FreeBSD, Perl, and more.
System administrator, network engineer, time management guru, speaker, author of 6 books, and generally silly person. I wrote "Time Management for System Administrators" from O'Reilly. I co-wrote "The Practice of System and Network Administration" and "The Practice of Cloud System Administration".
I work at StackOverflow, owner of ServerFault and StackExchange, but I do not speak for them (except when I do).
