Who I am
Hi, my name is Michael Chad Horohoe. I prefer to go by my middle name. I am in my late-20s, and I reside in San Francisco, California.
My interests include music, most aspects of computing, video games, reading, and pretty much anything else geeky.
I graduated Virginia Commonwealth University with a BS in Information Systems in the August 2012.
What I do
I work on MediaWiki. Since mid-2010, I have been working for the Wikimedia Foundation as a software engineer. Before that, I volunteered my time for MediaWiki and have been a member of our "Development Community" since 2008.
Before coming to the Foundation, I've done configuration management work for a Fortune 500 company and interned for my local government's IT office.
My proficiencies are in open source technologies and web applications, primarily the LAMP stack. I also have experience with C#/.NET and Java.
My full resume is available as a PDF.
I've taken up blogging about my work again.(Everyone says this, I gave up again)
