Hi, I'm Chad Woolley, AKA thewoolleyman everywhere.
I've been a professional full-stack polyglot coder/sysadmin for 25+ years, from mainframes to cloud computing.
I love loose coupling, high cohesion, pure functions, strong types, and dynamic languages.
But technology is the easy part of software development and deployment - working with
my fellow humans to build successful, empathatic, kind, and effective teams which provide
value to users is much more wonderfully challenging :)
I've been a Senior Software Engineer at Pivotal since 2006.
Prior to that, I've worked at IBM, Choice Hotels, and several other coding/sysadmin jobs.
I graduated from New Mexico State in 1994 with a BBA in Business Computer Systems
(because I wasn't good enough at math to get a CS degree).
I'm not looking for a job, and I haven't updated my resume for over a decade (I want to rewrite it in PureScript someday),
but I have an archaically outdated website at
http://thewoolleyweb.com - all my contact info is at the bottom.
If you want to know what I've been up to lately, feel free to ask me or check my
Thanks, and have a nice day!
