Hire the Fork
I’m currently based in Austin, Texas…and I took over the organizer role for the Austin C/C++ Meetup in December 2011. We have 350+ members and anywhere from two to three meetings a month, which include social events as well as career networking with local businesses.
I’d categorize myself as a C++ developer, focused on what would be called “Modern C++” (in the sense of the word as used by Andrei Alexandrescu). My motivation is to apply the language and its type safety to maintainable systems that are verified for correctness in every way possible—before a single line of code starts running. I enjoy teaching, consulting, and coding in service of this goal.
I’m a firm believer that money has a lot to do with the roots of evil—and is a fairly poor reason to do one thing instead of another. Yet I need to eat, and I happen to like sushi. That stuff isn’t cheap!
Until we solve the money problem, if you just happen to have some and want a consultation from the Fork—(or even if you just have a problem and no money)—send a rough description of the issue to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll analyze your problem and give you whatever free advice I can initially.
After that we’ll see where it goes…!
