Hi, I’m Troy (McCall).

Depending on which url you’re visiting that might be overly obvious. So let’s get down to what I do.

I’m a 34 year-old dev-ops/backend engineer, systems admin, & security contractor.

I studied Computer Science, & Mathematics at: the University of North Carolina Charlotte & Graduate Evolutionary Genomics / Bioinformatics at: North Carolina State University.

I specialize in network-system and web-app securities. I have worked on most every major web platform and technology: from custom J2EE Web Applications at Adecco, to .NET based Microsoft Technologies (SharePoint, MOSS, WSS) at Ingersoll Rand, to popular open source PHP and Node.js frameworks: including li3, Laravel, Socket.io, & Express in my current role at MODE. I’m passionate about open source technologies, automation, network-security, privacy, machine learning, artificial intelligence, data modeling, subgenres and coffee.

I operate most comfortably in Golang, Python, Docker (RHEL/CentOS images), PHP7+, & Nginx - but I’ll write a promise in JavaScript if it’s necessary.
