You may want to take a look at my blog, mostly covering technical subjects, and dominated by my series on writing a Ruby compiler in Ruby for the last few years.

I'm also interested in devops, and lately have been deploying most of my stuff inside Docker containers.

I do a limited amount of consulting at the moment, focusing on devops, Linux setup/sysadmin and developent in a range of languages (C, C++, Ruby, Javascript, PHP etc.). Related to my development, you can find my Github profile here

This site also holds Sliding Stats - a Rack Middleware to give a 'live snapshot' of recent traffic to your site (note: this is getting long in the tooth; it depends on a Ruby web server that does not use multiple processes (multiple threads is fine).

I hope to export the data using dbfdump and put it on my website at some point - if you are interested in the data but can't extract it from the zip file above, feel free to contact me ([email protected]).
