Chris Lamb

Hi. I'm a 33-year-old freelance computer programmer.

I've been an official Debian Developer since 2008 and am currently serving as the Debian Project Leader as well being a director of the Open Source Initiative. I'm the primary author of dozens of free/open-source projects and contributor to 100s of others. I also run a number of web services.

I'm highly active in the Reproducible Builds project. I have been awarded a grant from the Core Infrastructure Initiative to fund my work in this area.

I previously worked as Technical Architect at (acquired) & (YCombinator S12). I'm highly experienced in full-stack web development with a focus on backend development using Django and system administration but 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.

You can contact me at or follow me @lolamby.
