Dan Collis-Puro

Tech. Open Source. Stuff that doesn't suck.


I’ve been developer/dba/sysadmin/mentor for over 12 years, primarily using free software as my weapons of choice. I cut my teeth on perl but I’ve been writing ruby and ruby-on-rails apps primarily for the last few years.

I’m no slouch with PHP, WordPress, a bunch of CMSs’, Postgres, MySQL, solr, apache, nginx, noSQL dbs, jQuery, Javascript and numerous other skills that make the web work and linux boxes happy.

Me, elsewhere
