I'm Michael Twomey, a software engineer who seems to have navigated the computing waters of the past 20 years and landed in UNIX backend development and operations. These days I mostly drink coffee and give ou\^H\^H advice to younger engineers. I also seem to spend much more time grepping logs than I had really planned at this stage in my career. I've drunk from the cup of management.
You can always contact me at @micktwomey and *@mick.twomeylee.name (be creative with your email prefix). I've deleted my Facebook and LinkedIn accounts, so don't look for me there :)
My most successful open source project is a nasty bit of regular expression code to parse ISO 8601 dates. Go figure. (It's pyiso8601 if you're curious).
I help out where I can with the following groups:
- Coding Grace (mentoring events).
- Elm User Group Dublin (running events and the group).
- Global GameCraft (running events and coded up the site).
- Python Ireland (and previously I've helped run PyCon Ireland 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013). I also help create and run the sites.
