Hi there!

I'm Owen.

I’m a Python developer, Systems Administrator, and Web Developer/Admin, who loves open source.

I'm a Python Developer

I’m currently engulfed in making some cool Python programs. I’m developing scripts that output the weather, “terminal emulators”, and other cool programs. I’m continuing to rapidly learn Python. I’ve made programs that parse .json files from weather APIs, and programs that interface with GPIO on the Raspberry Pi for tracking revolutions on a bike wheel (GUI included).

I'm a Systems Administrator

I’m slightly experienced, but still learning Linux systems administration. I’m rock solid on setting up Apache/SQL servers, and maintaining them, along with configuring Apache for custom configurations. I know how to install some other programs, and create startup scripts. I’ve learned how to successfully install and implement about a dozen or so programs, and learning from each experience. Nowadays, I’m working with FreeNAS/UrBackup servers, along with maintaining my web/mail servers, with Apache, MySQL, and Mail-in-a-Box.

I do Web Development and Administration

For about 2 years now, I’ve gained experience in setting up WordPress sites, and customizing them to a certain look and feel using premade plugins and themes. I can set up a basic WordPress site in under an hour, but also set up full on websites in around 10 hours. I have experience in setting up bulletin boards (forums), using MyBB, along with doing advanced configurations for those. I know how to modify premade themes and plugins to work to my liking. I can also manage these sites, keeping an eye on forum users, and making sure WordPress sites run as expected. 

And I do other stuff in my free time.

When I’m not doing the three things mentioned above, I do some other stuff. I play a lot of Kerbal Space Program, and some Cities:Skylines when I feel like doing nothing. I compile some ROMs, or modify some phones. I’ve built some PCs, and made some servers, and voice my complaints about the world. Before this gets too long, I’m also an avid 3D Pinball player. Try to beat my high score of about 2 million.
