But what technologies does he use?

Technologies I Use Everyday


Everyday I use Ruby for everything from writing new tools to automation to web development

Amazon Web Services

Currently almost all of the infrastructure that I interact with is in AWS. Everything from EC2 to RDS to ECS to EKS. Provisioning everything using infrastructure as code (Terraform preferred).


Source control is important and so is having a good workflow for using it. I have experience with SVN and Mercurial, but personally like Git and use it everyday.


I live and breathe Linux. I have been configuring and running Linux servers for about 15 years, over half of that professionally.
