Open Source

  • Wikimedia foundation’s deployment software. I led the most-recent update for this software.
  • Python3 ssh-agent proxy. I wrote about Keyholder for the Wikimedia Foundation blog.
  • Ruby daemon for monitoring GitHub for tagged SparkFun pull requests – may still be in use ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  • May save the world some day. Probably won’t though. I’m writing this inside my ~/.dotfiles right now.
