When I mentioned to Rob Lewis that I was considering a move to join the BC Tech community he did what any good editor would do and challenged me to make a post out of it.
Never one to shy away from a challenge, here I am to present myself to the community and to see if I can excite you as much as you excite me.
Choosing an introduction style is always difficult so I have decided to try a couple techniques based on local companies.
The PlentyOfFish Dating method:
- Loves: Techy stuff, shiny things, pretty solutions, tattooed servers, programming, solving puzzles, simplicity, cooking
- Dislikes: Vitamin D, walking, exploring, finding out new things that break my reality, family time, ok, so not really dislikes, all these things are awesome too.
- Spend my time lost in thought with c++, perl, php, reading, objects, playing, networking.
