DreamCon Speaker Series #13: Ryan Petrello

Speaker: Ryan Petrello

Topic: Object Storage for your App

Whether you’re a seasoned software developer or just somebody who wants a simple way to back up your family photos, you won’t want to miss my talk about DreamObjects. We’ll review the powerful platform and walk through a wide-range of uses together!

During my talk, I’ll go through a series of examples (including code) of personal and professional uses for DreamObjects.

What do you do at DreamHost?

I’m a Senior Developer at DreamHost, which means I spend my days developing software that keeps systems running and customers happy.

What projects do you work on? What do you do on a regular basis?

Most recently, I’ve been involved in the development of a new customer-facing signup form, our new DreamPress optimized WordPress platform, and our next-generation public cloud offering, DreamCompute. On any given day, you’ll usually find me furiously banging away on a keyboard until the computer does my bidding.

What’s one interesting fact we don’t know about you?

In my spare time, I enjoy making (and drinking!) my own beer. I currently have an American Wheat ale fermenting away in a chest freezer in my garage.

What shows are on your DVR?

Breaking Bad, Dexter,  Game of Thrones,  House of Cards.

What iPhone/iPad app sucks more of your time than you’d like to admit?

Wunderlist. If it doesn’t go on the list, it doesn’t get done.

What’s your go-to cocktail?

Bourbon, neat. Or a well-prepared sazerac. Clear alcohols are for rich women on diets.
