Welcome Aaron to DNSimple!
It is my pleasure to officially welcome Aaron Kalin to the team at DNSimple. While he is already on his third week here, he's been hard at work to expand and maintain our website and name servers.
Aaron enjoys all things infrastructure with Chef where he contributes patches and maintains cookbooks. When he's not learning to play guitar, he will be wearing a Stormtrooper costume for charities and giving conference talks. Did you see that fox walking by? It might be Aaron too!
I break things so Simone continues to have plenty to do. I occasionally have useful ideas, like building a domain and DNS provider that doesn't suck.
We think domain management should be easy.
That's why we continue building DNSimple.
