Python Web developer. Employed full time, this site is just a little bit about me.
Technologies I use (daily).
The framework for real web developers, working to real deadlines. The only python web framework that allows you to create a truly limitless application.
SQL done right, after testing and experimenting with Mongo and various other noSQL systems, nothing beats SQLAlchemy, database agnostic and works flawlessly.
2014 has been a fantastic year for Linux containers, FreeBSD jails are a thing of the past (for me). Docker is storming through and has helped me deploy to a scale I had never imagined.
10 years personal use and 5 years commerical production use, theres not many packages I havent used. Compiling 2.4 kernels on a stage 1 Gentoo install, where it all started.

Solent Wholesale wanted to offer their customers the chance to get established on the internet with a basic website pressence, so I was tasked to create sevral templates for their customers to use. The site is powered by some very advaned FreeBSD and ZFS configuration.
The site was built to run perfectly on desktop, tablet, mobile and phones.
Each site is run inside a FreeBSD jail to isolate each process, written in 2012 docker containers were then a pip dream!
The ZFS configuration allows up to two drive failures on the server, ensuring limited downtime in the event of a hard drive failure.
All TradeSite users love their sites and the feedback has been amazing!
The computer industry is the only industry that is more fashion-driven than women's fashion.
