Brian Meeker is a remote software engineer who occasionally leaves his basement in Indiana. A recovering Perl monger, Brian loves writing applications across a variety of technologies and platforms. He gets to indulge this as a consultant at InfernoRed Technology. Brian is also the founder of the now defunct Richmond Tech meetup, where he learned how difficult it is is to organize a monthly meetup in an area with a very small tech community. Outside of work, Brian is a devoted father, avid Magic: The Gathering player, and lover of metal.
