UPDATE: There’s no location requirement. I kind of assume that I’m not going to find the best people by geographically limiting my search for potential partners. 🙂
Me: Live in Princeton, NJ area. Over 10 years experience with UNIX/Linux administration, databases and data modeling, and PHP/Perl. About 3 years experience using Python for back-end scripting and system automation, and less than a year of Django experience. Former Director of Technology for AddThis.com (it was bought out), Infrastructure Architect at cs.princeton.edu, and systems consultant/trainer. Creator of Python Magazine, former Editor in Chief of both php|architect *and* Python Magazine, and co-author of “Linux Server Hacks, volume 2” (O’Reilly).
You are one of these:
- A generalist webmaster (sysadmin/db admin/scripter) with at least 6 years experience working in production *nix environments with good familiarity in the areas of high availability, web servers (specifically Apache), proxy servers and monitoring, and has worked with/supported users like the ones mentioned above on web-based projects. If you have to look at the documentation to figure out how to implement a 301 redirect, this probably isn’t you.
Experience working on a team in larger projects with multiple people would be good. Note that I’m looking for people to partner with on projects, I’m not hiring full time employees. Future partnership in a proper business is certainly a possibility, but… baby steps! I do have a couple of domains that would be great for use with this kind of project if it ever progresses that far 🙂
I know that other people are out there looking for people to partner with on projects, but there doesn’t appear to be a common place for them to interact. Maybe that can be a project we undertake together 🙂 — if there *is* a place where people meet up for this kind of thing, let me know!
Let’s have fun, and take over the world! Shoot me an email at “bkjones” @ Google’s mail domain.
