About Me

Hi, my name is Rory Bradford (I use the roryrjb handle pretty much everywhere on the Internet) and I’m a remote software engineer from the UK currently living in Portugal.

Software Engineering

When it comes to technology, I am passionate about free and open-source software, and I contribute where I can and maintain projects that others have contributed to as well. I am interested in all aspects of programming, infrastructure, sysadmin and developer tooling.

I have experience with many different technologies and tools including Python, fullstack JavaScript (browser, Node.js, Express, Vue.js, React, React Native), Perl, Lua, Java, Android, C, C++, MongoDB, MySQL, Redis, Nginx, Docker, Kubernetes, Ansible, POSIX shell, Bash, AWS, Azure, Google Cloud and various other things along the way.

I’m most at home on a UNIX or UNIX-like system with Vim, a POSIX compatible shell, sed, awk, grep, man pages, make, Docker, Nginx and Ansible in my toolbelt, but I’m capable in other environments as well. I am a heavy user of Debian based systems especially Ubuntu.

I also maintain some packages for Ubuntu in a PPA, and occasionally blog.

Public PGP keys

I accept PGP encrypted email.
