I have lots of experience with open source GIS technologies, and I have helped bootstrap a number of them, especially those focused on Python bindings and APIs. I have worked on MapServer's Python/SWIG API, GDAL's C/Python API, Shapely + GEOS, Rtree + libspatialindex, and libLAS/PDAL over the past number of years. I have also participated in numerous project governance efforts, and I helped with the bootstrapping of OSGeo's computing infrastructure at its beginning.
I'm an open source GIS software developer currently focused on LiDAR/point cloud data management software.
