Web software engineer.

Server (Java, PHP) and UI (JS, CSS)

Designer and photographer on the side.

I'm a serial user of the double __ space after a period — even though people tell me it's obsolete in the computer-world, I can't shake the habit from my 7th grade typing class.

comment Reasons NOT to open source not-for-profit code?
@MasonWheeler The issue is for an organization with limited resources and unlimited ways to spend those resources, a "serious discussion of security" might not actually be warranted. I think it's nice to put "security" above all else, but reality is that it needs to be balanced with every business need. And of course, a good software engineer will be able to keep security high at any level of design, but that is where the discussion of limited resources comes into play. I couldn't in good conscience recommend opensourcing based on "you should have security figured out anyway".
