I'm Chris Lamb, a 33-year-old freelance computer programmer.

I have been an official Debian Developer since 2008, was the Debian Project Leader from 2017—2019 and am currently a director of both the Open Source Initiative and of Software in the Public Interest, Inc.

I am now highly active in the Reproducible Builds project and have previously received a grant from the Core Infrastructure Initiative and was awarded a Google Open Source Peer Bonus for my work in this area. Within Debian, I maintain the Redis and Memcached packages, amongst many other tasks.

I'm the primary author of dozens of free and opensource projects and contributor to 100s of others. I also am the architect and maintainer of a number of web services such as Ethermap.

I previously worked as Technical Architect at Playfire.com (acquired) & Thread.com (YCombinator S12). I'm highly experienced in full-stack web development with a focus on backend development using Django and system administration. You can find my latest programming interests on my blog.

I'm an avid reader and film-watcher as well as a cellist and lutenist.
