As of Monday, the 9th, I will be considering opportunities for short term consulting and contract work. Please feel free to contact me if you have a software challenge to tackle, particularly if it involves one or more of Python, Twisted, networking, event-driven architectures, massive scaling, or open source software.
Immediately following the demise of Divmod this summer, I took a job at a major international corporation. A number of factors conspired to make this decision non-viable in the long term. Today I gave notice. I'm excited to be able to get back to doing what I love - solving challenging, interesting problems in a flexible, open environment.
One of the other things I've been unable to do since even before Divmod's end is commit serious time to Twisted development and maintenance. This is something else I'm looking forward to re-engaging in. I made a sizable dent in Twisted's open ticket count last fall and winter, thanks to funding from the Twisted Software Foundation (in turn thanks to all of the Twisted founding sponsors). I'll be able to continue this work thanks to this year's sponsors (visible on the front page of the Twisted site), though perhaps not to the same extent. If you'd like to help out in this regard, become a sponsor! All donations are useful and appreciated!
