Hi, I'm Adam DeConinck.
I work on designing, building, and maintaining large computing systems. For me, that's mostly meant so-called "high performance computing" systems used for scientific computing; but I've also worked on large distributed storage systems, databases, and other applications that require lots of computers. If you've got a picture in your head of huge rooms with long rows of server racks, you've got the right idea.
Aside from computers, I'm mostly a fairly average nerd. I curl at the Granite Curling Club in Seattle, play tabletop role-playing games with my friends, occasionally bake tasty desserts, and volunteer with Ragtag to try to make the world a slightly better place. I live with my amazing wife, Leigh Featherstone, and cheer on her roller derby team; and we do our best to continue to entertain our herd of cats.
