Some recent work…
Much of my recent work has been with private clients for their internal projects, so I can’t really show that work. However, these are some of my selected projects from the the public domain that I have been involved with recently….
Goooooood Morning VietNam!
Its a real challenge to find time, but whenever I can, I try to help out in the open-source community. Check out some of my project contributions on Github! If you are into music & managing your own music library, be sure to look at Picard & the wikidata-genre meta-data plugin. This plugin was completely broken when I got hold of it, but now it makes managing your library genres so much easier!
While working at Cisco Systems, I developed a “secret agent” ( encryption key / other types of secrets agent ) for the OpenStack platform called Marshal. Marshal can manage “secret” retrieval from any configured Key Management System (KMS) like Barbican, the built-in key store of Open Stack. Not only can it retrieve & store secrets, but it will actually handle disk or partition-level encryption at VM spinup time, according to a desired conf. Cisco doesn’t list my name, presumably because I was a contractor, but the code was created by me. Read more about Marshal here.
Grok and Roll!
The Grok Shop is a project I started back in 2016. Its a technical how-to YouTube channel and associated blog. I have a growing library of videos and blog posts where I practice the art of communication and education of technical concepts. Its a source of great inspiration and huge amount of fun for me, and I have learned more than I have taught.
