About Me

This is what I do.

Hullo There

My name is Jesse Portnoy

I am a multidisciplinary programmer (they call it full-stack nowadays but I prefer the former term).

I have a clear preference towards backend development and automation, a solid UNIX (that includes Linux, of course) system administration experience and basic understanding of hardware (I have never designed HW but I know how to put it together and apart and what common parts do and how to test them for issues).

I have vast experience with packaging and deployment automation and am well versed in packaging RPMs and Debs, as well as other common formats (NPM, PIP, Maven, etc).

I enjoy taking people's build and deployment headaches and turning them into rainbows.
