Thomas is a former Network Engineer and part time Python Developer. Unsatisfied with the current state of tools developed in the vendor space he has taken it upon himself to help fill in the gaps. In more recent times Thomas has been working as a Systems Reliability Engineer for Canonical where he ensures all your Ubuntu services are as fresh and reliable as possible.
Cutting his teeth automating one of Western Australia's largest networks, Thomas has been focusing his efforts on Trigger, an open source network automation framework.
When he's not wrangling pythons and pushing packets Thomas enjoys CRPGs, beer and listening to loud noises.
