As noted on the home page, my name is Dan Nielsen. I'm a software developer and systems administrator based near Chicago, Il.

I have extensive experience administering both Linux and Windows systems. In addition to maintaining base operating systems I also have experience administering storage services (SQL Server, PostgreSQL, ElasticSearch), mail systems (exim, postfix, powermta), Apache, and HAProxy.

I do most of my software development in .NET and Python, though I've been know to work in Javascript, C, and C++.

I manitain a number of open source projects. Most are discrete utilities for use in solving specific problems. Have a look at the Projects page or see my Github repositories for a more complete list.

When not parked at a keyboard, I enjoy reading, fishing, hiking, and long walks.
