Remember that guy in that place that said that really obnoxious thing that probably offended you? That was me.
My name’s Paddy Foran. I live in Buffalo, New York. I write software, give talks, and work for Iron.io, where we’re working hard to build the cloud so you don’t have to. (Don’t think poorly of them just because of little old me, though—they’re wonderful people who were just silly enough to hire me. My opinions and crude language are my own, void where prohibited by law, et cetera, et cetera.)
I’m also a co-founder of Second Bit, a modest little startup that makes cloud software with some personality. We’re best known for 2cloud, our Android app/Chrome extension double-whammy that makes it simple to move links from your phone to your computer.
I don’t know much about you, but I’m willing to bet I’ve offended you in some way, shape, or form already. And if I haven’t, well, I probably will soon. I don’t mind all that much, and I hope you don’t, either.
As it turns out, I’m a pretty opinionated guy. I think that colour has a "u", I think you don’t deserve to live if you don’t use the Oxford comma, and I think Ruby on Rails should be euthanised. I believe Go to be the One True Language, and if you think butchering the English language because you’re lazy is okay, I probably fantasise about your death.
If you can get past all that, though, I’m unashamedly silly, have it on good authority that I "don’t suck too badly", and have heard several times that I’m "pretty okay". So you should imitate a group of sharks that has spotted easy prey and circle me or at the very least follow me.
