Hi, I'm Adam DeConinck.

I like building computing systems and software that help solve scientific problems. I care about making scientific computing systems which are high performance, user-friendly, and productive for scientists and engineers who care a lot more about their research than they care about computers.
Most of my recent work in HPC has been in system administration (or "DevOps" if we're applying trendy terms). I've helped to build, deploy, automate, monitor, and maintain some of the biggest supercomputers in the world. (I've also built and managed a bunch of tiny systems used for development and testing special-purpose hardware, including a Raspberry Pi cluster. I'm not a cluster-size snob. ;-) )
Outside of work I'm mostly your average geek. I read a lot, play a lot of board games, play in the Santa Fe curling league, and am a huge fan of my wife's roller derby team. If you follow me on Twitter you'll probably see as many cat photos as you will technology links, but I think they're at least relatively cute cats.
