What technologies do I use?

Technologies I Use Everyday


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

Amazon Web Services

EC2 to RDS to ECS to EKS, I've deployed them all. I have experience provisioning nearly everything in AWS using infrastructure as code (Terraform preferred).


Whether it's a single container running in Docker on an instance, a collection of containers running in ECS, or a distributed set of microservices running in Kubernetes, I have designed, implemented, and operated them all.


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