A bit about me

I’m working full time as a database administrator responsible for multiple, large Oracle and SQL Server databases.

Before my career as a DBA I worked as a developer using a wide range of technologies including Java, PL/SQL, Python, JavaScript, and SAP ABAP. I have good working knowledge of a host of other languages and frameworks, though most of my development nowadays is done with PL/SQL and Unix/Linux shell scripts. I still develop software as a hobby (mostly Java/Python) during my free time, and love to contribute to open source projects.

I’m starting this blog to share interesting tidbits of information about all things IT and the many side projects that I find myself wrapped up in.
