I’m part of the team @heroku, a Platform-as-a-service, which takes much of the overhead out of IT from keeping the lights on and lets developers focus on building features and adding value. Specifically I work with the Heroku Data team focused on defining what a Cloud Database service should look like and working to build such a service. I’m originally from the South, specifically Alabama, but am fairly close to a local of the Bay area being here over 7 years now. If you’re San Francisco Bay Area so if you’re around and want to chat about Product stuff, Heroku, Wine, Football or other things in general feel free to reach out to me @craigkerstiens.
In addition to writing about tech, startups, databases on here I:
- Curate Postgres Weekly, a weekly email newsletter with Postgres content
- Speak at quite a few conferences, if you’re interested in having me talk at one reach out
- Speak many words of wisdom on twitter like everyone else
