About Me

Hello! I'm Brian Cottingham, also known on the Internet as spiffytech. I recently graduated from N.C. State University with a degree in Computer Science. 

I'm a fan of open source stuff. I do hobby programming projects in Python, and have used Linux as my desktop OS since before Ubuntu was a gleam in Shuttleworth's eye. I even spent three years as the president/vice president of the NCSU Linux Users Group, where I still reside as chairman of the Alumni Committee, and Chief Subcaptain of Switzerland.

I currently work at On-Site as a Devops Engineer using Chef.


In 2013 I took an RV trip around the country, which you can read about on my travel blog.
