Website | @JnBrymn

John’s first career was as an aerospace engineer, but after several years in aerospace he found that he most loved his job when he was either programming or working on a good math problem. Eventually John cut out the aircraft and satellites and started working full-time with software development, infrastructure architecture, and data science. These days John works at VividCortex building best-of-breed server performance monitoring tools.
