For many years a Perl Bioinformatics programmer in Philadelphia for a major pharma company helping scientists load, process, analyze and view their data. As a programmer with sysadmin tendencies, now managing the builds and Jenkins for a team that causes credit card swipes to do the right thing.

Keeper of the lighting talks gong.

Geoff really should get a life and go to fewer conferences:

PerlWhirl 1-2
YAPC::NA/TPC::NA 1999-2017 (18)

PittsburghPW 2006-08, 2010-11, 2013-15
FrozenPerl 2010
DC-BaltimorePW 2012-16
= 185 days (+ 6 this season)

This only counts conferences where Perl is the topic or a major track.
