About me

I’m Dave Peticolas, a software programmer, reader, and amateur dog walker. My first computer was a Radio Shack TRS-80 Model III and I’ve been futzing around with these things ever since. I was a major contributor to the GnuCash project and a minor contributor to Twisted. I’m probably best known for my introduction to asynchronous programming with Twisted and I am grateful for all the positive feedback and translations that has received.

I spent a long stint of my professional life so far was at Lucasfilm where I worked on digital asset management and production tracking systems and met a wonderful and diverse collection of people. I moved on to working in genomics-related biotech for Counsyl which was then acquired by Myriad. I’m still in healthcare and having a wonderful time working with some of the most talented folks I have ever met.

I currently live in Portland, Oregon with my wife Beth and this little guy named Ralphie:
