José Miguel Parrella

I'm an open source enthusiast involved in the Debian Project since at least 2005. I've been a Debian Developer since 2007 and have worked on a number of packages historically, including xmms, nginx and a number of Perl and PAM libraries.

I have a background building Debian derivatives, including a number of them for public sector, one of which (Canaima) now has several million end users. I also have a background in consulting, focusing on Linux and open source technologies, particularly infrastructure/backends.

I'm originally from Caracas, Venezuela, and lived in Ecuador for many years before moving to the Seattle area, where I live. I work in Azure where I focus on Linux and other open source technologies related to cloud computing.
