I’m just your average beer & coffee drinking software developer and sysadmin in PDX. When I told people I was moving here, nobody was surprised. This may have something to do with the toe shoes. I’m a Developer Advocate at Puppet, which basically means that I know how to talk to developers outside the company and to developers inside the company and I can help them to be friends with each other. I get to play with all the cool new tools and help others learn how to do it for real.
When I started here, I was in professional services, which meant that I visited exotic places like Denver and Columbus and teach people to use Puppet or help them integrate it into their infrastructure. Now most of my travel is to blab at conferences and such.
🔭 📽 🤔My major project is puppetlabs/showoff, for which I'm always interested in collaboration and help with. I do have a bunch of other smaller projects going, some are pinned below and some can be found in my unholy mess of repositories. Someday I'll clean those up. 💻I’ve been poking at Rust a bit lately, and want to rewrite binford2k/abalone in something closer to the metal. 🌎Places on the interwebs where I sometimes put words 📫I'm @binford2k in all the other places too. 😄Pronouns: he/him or anything respectful 🛼My partner is a founding member of a few roller derby leagues/teams and we're pretty active in that world. So if you've never seen a bout and you want to, hit me up!
