Free and Open Source Software is an important part of my life as a developer.
I was a Samba Team member from April 2004 until January 2010, when I maintained samba.org and related Samba web sites and infrastructure.
Django was used extensively in my work at Naples Daily News, the Washington Post, and Greenspun Interactive, and during that time I contributed regularly to the community, writing bug reports and patches, and regularly helping in mailing list discussions. I still follow development closely and have some of my own projects using Django, though I don't personally contribute much to the project itself any more.
Samples of my own projects and code include:
- gravatarlib -- A Python library for working with Gravatar profiles and avatar URLs. (View the code)
- lpmedic -- Launchpad Bug Medic, a little tool to help triage Launchpad bugs. (View the code)
- paperlate -- A collection of Django apps useful for building web sites that aggregate content from around the web. paperlate was never turned into much. It powers a fan site I did for Heroes called Heroes Sightings. (View the code)
- gcli -- A Google command line Interface and pure Python library using Google's now discontinued SOAP search API. Old code, but an interesting tool for fun with cli-based Google searches. (View the code)
