Doug Stewart brings in extensive systems, WordPress experience
Howdy all, my name is Doug Stewart. I’m the newest addition to the 10up systems team, and I couldn’t be more excited to be joining the company.
I’ve been using Linux since 1997 or so, but don’t hold that against me and I’ve been going by the nickname “Zamoose” for at least that long. I’ve over 15 years of experience in the IT industry to bring to bear on problems related to networks, systems and software, with a special penchant for solving problems in the Linux space. I’ve spent time at software giants like IBM, in the advanced US Defense Department research community, working with geneticists and medical researchers as a high-performance computing administrator and have even spent a bit of time in a startup or two back in the first Internet Bubble. Lately, I’ve been working heavily in the areas of systems automation and virtualization.
I first came across WordPress in 2004 during the Great Licensing Wars and have been a dedicated WP user and contributor since version 1.0. I have experience in developing themes and plugins, contributing to the core WordPress software, participating in the greater community and helping WordPress users get the most out of their sites.
I also co-organize the monthly Philadelphia WordPress Meetup and the yearly WordCamp Philadelphia and Tech Week Philly events and am very involved in the Philadelphia metro area WordPress community.
When I’m not wrestling Linux systems into submission, I can be found keeping busy with my beautiful wife and four kids. I coach my son’s lacrosse team, am an avid reader, video- and boardgamer, and actively participate in my church and community events, and consume of music of all kinds.
Oh, and I own a kilt.
