Release Engineer, Wikimedia Foundation
- I have an extensive background in Software Development, Linux administration and network operations. With a formal education in Computer Science and more than 20 years of experience working on the web, from developing and maintaining infrastructure, servers and platforms to designing and deploying extremely high-traffic user-facing applications.
- Most recently I spent 4 years as a Web Developer turned DevOps engineer at deviantART before joining the Wikimedia Foundation as a Release Engineer in May of 2014.
- I have extensive experience with Phabricator, first as a DevOps Engineer at DeviantART and later as the primary maintainer of phabricator.wikimedia.org
I have many responsibilities as a Release engineer at the Wikimedia Foundation. The most significant among them are as follows:
- Maintain and improve Wikimedia's fork of Phabricator, as well as the production deployment at phabricator.wikimedia.org.
- Ongoing development of various deployment tools and infrastructure. ( scap )
- Rotating responsibility for the Mediawiki Train Deployments.
Recently I've also been dabbling in a bit of data science, learning SciPy, Pandas, Jupyter and related tech.
