My little corner of the internet


Hello, my name is Sam Trenholme. I am a widower, single parent, and professional software developer. I enjoy using technology to solve real-world problems.

I am in a new contract-to-hire position working closely with Amazon Lambda and other AWS technologies.

In my previous brief contract with Intuit, I was working on testing and automated deployment of software-as-a-service (SaaS) programs, using Ansible, Terraform, and Chef. Before that, I was working with Docker, AWS, and Jenkins to implement a testing and continuous integration framework for a web application. I also have helped develop a dynamically generated web site, its Python back end REST interface, and maintained a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) web site. Details are in my résumé.

I am flexible with the technology I work with and do not believe in buzzwords; as a skilled software developer I quickly adapt to new technologies as new sources of revenue. That said, some technologies I have worked with recently are Ansible, Jenkins, Docker, Javascript, DOM, Ajax, REST, jQuery, JSON, XML, CSS, HTML, PHP, Perl, Python, Linux, Windows 7, OS virtualization, UNIX shell scripting, C, Apache, nginx, FastCGI, cloud computing, and so on.

I have done a number of open source projects over the years, and use a lot of open source in my work, but my focus now is on professional software development.
