I’m David.

I’m a Senior Software Engineer and I’m part of the OpenStack engineering organization at Red Hat. My focus is around making sure the RDO distribution of OpenStack is awesome.

I create, build, package, test and ship things. Doing all that requires infrastructure, servers and tooling: I do that stuff too.

What’s this blog about

I learn new stuff every day. Sometimes I write about it. Sometimes I rant about it.

The topics you’ll read about here involve system administration, hosting, cloud and technologies in between.
