I finally got around to posting my OSCON 2010 attendee profile:
I work as a database administrator in a global team looking after a large financial institution’s relational database plant. For better or worse, this plant is 100% COTS; we’ll see what I can do to change that.
While database administration in our group is awesome (computing + adrenaline = fun), I most enjoy the time spent writing internal tools in Perl and C, from compiled plugins for DB2 to automation solutions, and analyzing system faults in Linux.
Evangelizing and teaching new trends, technologies, and best practices to my group is as important and enjoyable as the code I write, though. I love the reaction I get from disciples who finally realize and understand the power of git and zsh.
