Full-stack developer, DevOps/cloud service operator, IT strategic advisor, smokejumper

I'm often called in "OMG! Everything is on fire! HALP!!!" situations. I'm especially good at complex integration and automation tasks.

I've programmed inside the Unix kernel and multi-threaded middleware, but my own development projects tend to be up-stack, using Python, Flask, JavaScript, jQuery, d3.js, HTML, CSS, and LESS most heavily at present. Also have worked heavily with Perl, PHP, WordPress, Java, SQL, MySQL, XML, JSON, Open Document Format, and a buncha other stuff. I am interested in, but have not heavily used, Ruby, Go, Julia, Rust, D, Nimrod, and a few others. Or I can get into the wayback machine and do C, bash, awk, Ada, Pascal, Modula-2, Icon, LISP, Prolog, and Smalltalk, depending how far back you want to go. Let's just pretend that BASIC thing never happened, s'ok?

Look for me on BitBucket, Github, and stackoverflow. For those seeking a mentor, I'm available!

comment Separate code coverage reports for unit and integration tests, or one report for both?
Sure. In the same way you can compute "miles per gallon" (of fuel consumed) independent of, and orthogonal to, the kind of vehicle in use. I'd argue that merging the results from heavy-lift booster rockets, long-haul trucks, and economy cars gives a misleading combo-metric. I imagine you could still use an "across the fleet" figure for some purpose.

comment Modern OOP vs Alan Kays OOP
This is a discussion topic. Probably one best had over libations. It is not a simple, direct question, nor well-suited to the Stack Exchange Q&A format.

comment How do you make decorators as powerful as macros?
Hy is a cool trick, but working in it is "working in Lisp" not "working in Python." It may piggyback the Python infrastructure and ecosystem just as Jython and JRuby piggyback the Java infrastructure and ecosystem, but it doesn't seem to let you do anything more in Python that you couldn't do before Hy.
