Upstream Contributions

Personal Projects:

Internal Work Projects (Red Hat VPN required):

  • Phoenix - Database server on demand: This is a full stack project I wrote to help support engineers inspect and manipulate database backups. The engineer provides a case number and attachment name using the frontend web interface and the backend downloads the attachment, spins up a podman container and provides the access details to the support engineer.
  • Gobot - A Multiplatform Chat Bot: I am one of the core maintainers for the Gobot project, a collection of software that is used by thousands of Red Hatters each day to monitor there case work, give karma to each other and provide access to many useful services right form the chat platform.
