I'm a software developer and DevOps/cloud service operator. I also advise companies and investors on IT and business strategy. Solid programmer. Extraordinary trouble-shooter and "OMG! Everything is on fire! HALP!!!" first responder. Especially good at complex integration and automation.
I've "jumped the fence" into new programming languages, styles, and communities multiple times, so particularly good at mentoring those just "getting into" new languages and toolsets, or moving into cloud/DevOps deployments.
Pragmatic. Results matter. Repeatable approaches to achieve quality results matter. Individual tools, languages, and APIs? Enh. Just a means to the end. While I love technology, all the evidence suggests that larger issues such as ecosystems, communities, human factors, economics, and organizational dynamics usually trump things that are simply "better mousetraps."
