John Dalton


John Dalton is a Database Administrator for Engine Yard, where he's been working remotely from his home office in Tasmania to support developers around the world for the past six years. Most of his career has been spent as a *nix sysadmin since shortly after he first fell in love with Unix in the mid 90s. When not fixing Linux boxes and databases in the cloud John enjoys being a dad to his four boys, video and tabletop gaming, cooking and decorating cakes. As far as he knows he is the only person to have ever interrupted a birthday party to comply with the terms of a CC-BY-SA license before cutting the cake.
