Moving to Rackspace

Posted May 6th, 2013. Tagged with self.

As you may have heard by now, I'm joining Rackspace. This was a very hard decision, I love my job at Rdio, I love my coworkers, and I love the product we're building. However, Rackspace has given me an opportunity to make my work on open source projects (particularly PyPy) a major part of my job. I'll also be spending time on OpenStack, the SDKs, and internal developer evangelism. I'll be staying in San Francisco.

This Summer

Posted May 6th, 2011. Tagged with pypy, python, self.

For the past nearly two years I've been an independent contractor working primarily for Eldarion, and it's been fantastic, I can't say enough good things. However, this summer I'm shaking things up a bit and heading west. I'll be an intern at Quora this summer. They're a Python shop, and it's going to be my job to make everything zippy. Specifically I'll be making the site run on PyPy, and then tuning the hell out of both their codebase and PyPy itself. I'm super excited about the chance to get a major site running on PyPy, and to contribute as many performance improvements upstream as possible.
