Phil Eaton

Hey! I'm Phil (he/him). In the past I've been a developer, a manager, and a cofounder. Today I'm a staff engineer working on Postgres products at EnterpriseDB.

I am a college dropout (not by choice; stay in school!) and for the last 10 years I've chased my way down the software stack starting from humble beginnings with the venerable jQuery and PHP.

I like to do projects, write articles, and organize communities around software internals, particularly databases, distributed systems, and programming languages. And those topics are what this site is about.
