Hi, I’m John Tobin.
Since July 2010 I’ve been working in Site Reliability Engineering at
Google. Currently I’m the manager
of BigTable SRE in Dublin;
previously I was an SRE running BigTable, Colossus, and
I’m a double graduate of Trinity College, Dublin: I
completed a B.A. (Mod) in Computer Science in 2002, and an M.Sc. in Computer
Science in 2009; my M.Sc. thesis and papers are available from
my publications page. I studied for my M.Sc. in evenings and
weekends, in addition to my full-time job, and completed it in two years, the
minimum time period permitted.
For seven years I was a Unix Systems Administrator in the School of Computer
Science and Statistics, Trinity College
For four years I was a Unix Systems Administrator for the Internet
Society, Trinity College
