- Where do you work out of?
- What do you you work on? (you can list projects that don’t use anything like bors)
- How did you end up interested in bors-ng?
- Do you have a blog or GitHub or something to follow?
- What do you enjoy other than programming?
- Anything else we should know? (this bullet point is not intended to sound ominous)
I’m Michael Howell, basically running this forum and bors-ng in general. I live in Arizona, and get very smug about not having DST. Not a big fan of Joe Arpaio, though.
I originally started this to use at work, because it seemed like a good idea but homu’s codebase wasn’t very good (and the original creator had abandoned it). I’m not sure if bors-ng’s codebase is better, but it works in multitenant setups like the big public instance, which is really cool. It’s also all-open-source.
Cerebrum LABdivus, the software I work on at work, is basically a specialized factory tracking system for anatomic pathology labs, because a pathology lab is essentially a “disassembly line”: start with a tissue sample, slice it into smaller and smaller pieces and put them on slides, look at them under a microscope, and produce a diagnosis report as a deliverable. Some of our competitors are hospital systems first and lab management second: this is terrible, since while a pathology lab is a specialized factory, a hospital is closer to a specialized hotel. Due to the un-sexiness of our business, our biggest competitor is Microsoft Excel.
