Greetings and salutations. I am Charlie Root. I go by a bunch of other names, such as 'Toor', 'Riedel', 'Satanclaus', 'Megamoth' or simply 'Dennis'. Charlie Root is by far my longest pseudonym. It's originated from the UNIX 'root' user, who's 'real' name happens to be Charlie Root. I work for an awesome firm called Sentia.

I design high available, fault tolerant and auto scaling infrastructure in the cloud, architect DTAP deployment streets using Wercker and Bamboo and utilise a range of tools and third-party services to deploy applications into the cloud, including but not limited to Ruby, Docker, CloudFormation, Chef, Ansible, GIT, and Bitbucket. I am a proponent of test driven development and a Scrum enthusiast. I'm also a Scrum master.
