I'm Christopher Brown, senior software engineer with Amazon Development Centre. I'm originally from Seattle, Washington and managed a software team there for Amazon.com's home office. Before that I worked as a software engineer, program manager, and software development manager for local companies including Internap LLC and Microsoft. My interests include programming language and type system design - languages like Ruby and Lisp, but I've been known to use Perl, C# & C++, and Java when forced. Most recently, I've been concentrating on infrastructure design for a new Amazon project.
