Hi my name is Tim Nash
I’m the WordPress Platform Lead & Developer Advocate for 34SP.com
Which means I’m a cross between a DevOp & Project Manager, I work on our Managed WordPress Platform.
I’m also co-organiser of WordPress Leeds, talk at events around the UK and try to help out on the WordPress.org support forums.
I program in a variety of languages, but most of my day to day work is either PHP or Python. I’m known to also be seen writing C++, Erlang, COBOL, Go, Java (If I must) and occasionally Ruby.
While I’m happy using Apache, most of my time is with Nginx, PHP-FPM or HHVM, MariaDb, Memcached based stacks.
You will often find me using Puppet, Chef, Ansible and good old Bash as provisioning and orchestration tools.
My world is a mix of the old: KVM, OpenVZ and the new: Docker, Kubernetes with everything in between.
I use Atom as my editor, Git for version control, like a good hipster who I use zsh and my sites are hosted on 34SP.com
I’m a unix sort of guy spending time with CentOS, CoreOS, Ubuntu & OSX, though my roots are with OS/2 and RiscOS. I really don’t know how to fix the printer device on Windows, maybe turn it on and off?
I talk (a lot) about WordPress, E-commerce, Performance & Security at events and on my blog as well as on Twitter.
