I am more than proficient in C, JavaScript, and Python. I also have experience with Bash, C++, Go, Java, Lua, Ruby, PHP, Perl, and TypeScript.

I know React, Django, and Node.js. In the past I have used Rails and Twisted Python.

I have extensive operational experience with PostgreSQL, MySQL, Cassandra, LevelDB, and BerkeleyDB. I have also dealt with RabbitMQ, Apache Solr, ElasticSearch, and Scribe in production environments. I have been in on-call rotations at Bloglines and Cloudkick.
