Christopher M. Hobbs
I am a Systems and Software Engineer focusing on backend development and data mining. Currently, I am employed as a developer for Acumen Brands. In former (professional) lives I've repaired electronics, worked in municipal IT, ran a systems/software/security consultancy, and worked for a social media startup.
I'm an active maintainer of the sinatra-authentication gem, I mirror the Rainbows! repository on Github, and I lend a hand on netsuite-rest-client and rest_suite. Other minor contributions can generally be found on my Github profile.
Some former projects include starting the golang-weekly mailing list (now under a new curator), involvement in the openSUSE project (working on a11y, gnome2, and general bugfixes), minor documentation fixes for the FreeBSD project, and the hn-parents list.
Writing and Talks
I'm currently in the process of aggregating old blog posts, text files, interviews, and presentations I've given. I'll post them here as I sort them out.
