I am Laurence, an average geek hacking away on random stuff.
I work at PayPal, and am particularly passionate about security and distributed systems. For more information, my CV can be viewed here.
I maintain a couple of webservices that I created to solve my personal pain points, and randomly unleash the Chaos Monkey on them.
In my free time, I write about random stuff, from posts on education to entrepreneurship and finally politics. And a whole ton of other random stuff.
I won't say I'm the world's foremost expert on all of these, and what I write about is simply what I think of things.
I help organise a couple of events in the local (Singapore) geek calendar, including the awesome (ok, that's severely biased, but I still think it's damn awesome) GeekcampSG.
I created the Singapore MongoDB User Group as well, creating a community of over 100 people sharing their knowledge of MongoDB.
Built Instasyncer in less than 24 hours with a high availability backend.
Work mainly in Python/MongoDB/Ngnix stack these days.
