Dan is a long-time system administrator – he first installed Linux on his home PC in 1995 and never looked back. A veteran of the original dotcom bubble, he founded a web hosting company in the late 90's, and managed it from inception to acquisition. Since then, he has worked in a variety of environments from start-ups to global corporations, including as an administrator at Ubisoft Montréal, and as a lecturer at the University of Winnipeg. Today, Dan is a web engineer at Mozilla, a role that allows him to work on a wide variety of cutting-edge open source technologies at large scales.

JP was one of five Threadless-ers who went on to work on web tech for Obama for America in 2012, where he was one of four devops engineers. After the campaign, JP joined Mozilla Foundation, helping them go from 20 pushes per year to 2000 pushes per year in less than one year. He's now working with Firefox teams to migrate large scale applications from a physical datacenter to AWS in a devops-y way.
