Freelance, 201 Created (since April 2009)

Most recently I have been doing ops at the Money Advice Service, including improving their monitoring, replacing their CI system with Jenkins, updating old puppet code, and preparing their infrastructure to make use of docker and kubernetes.

Before that I was helping dstl (a part of the Ministry of Defence) develop a django application for collaborating on finding and using links to tools (internal and external).

Other work includes helping relaunch Pando (a web publication covering technology, Silicon Valley, startups), taking it from Wordpress VIP to a django CMS with an entirely new design; and working at Linden Lab on two projects—a back end rewrite of inline code into web services to support scaling, and helping implement their new international billing system.
