Joke of the Week
There are only 10 kinds of people in the world: Those who know binary, and those who don't.
I love the challenge of learning new systems & technologies. My ideal environment involves working with a small team to create or improve interesting systems. However, I also work quite well independently and in management positions.
I have over five years experience troubleshooting problems with -and creating solutions for- systems ranging from home user's personal systems, up through enterprise level cloud systems.
I am a computer programmer and a webmaster. My preferred build-it-from-the-ground-up system for web servers run Nginx on Ubuntu Server.
I have worked in-depth with Oracle Service Cloud, specializing in reporting, analytics, custom objects, email, & back-end utilities.
I have created full-stack systems for IoT & automation systems from the hardware level through high-level flows utilizing Home Assistant, etc.
I have managed small teams (< 6), & have been deeply involved in hiring and on-boarding whole teams (20-30) in short periods of time.
Languages & Protocols
I know or have used the following, though some only at a "Hello World!" level:
Tools, Programs, & Technologies
Oracle Service Cloud, Microsoft Access, Home Assistant,
Arduino, ESP8266, ArcGIS (+IcoMap), Firefox add-ons (Legacy), & GCC,
I mostly run Linux boxes (historically Debian, Mandrake, Mandriva, Mint; currently Ubuntu, & Raspbian). Though I do (begrudgingly) have Windows running in some (mostly virtual) machines. I'm quite fond of Android.
