Ian Forrest

Ian is a problem solver — preferably, those problems are solvable with Python (or SPL). He has over 15 years of experience in "making things work" in security and technology and still enjoys every minute of it. When he's not pursuing an attempt to automate himself out of a job, you can probably find him wearing a tasteful Christmas sweater or a pair of board shorts and an aloha shirt (depending on the time of year).

What You Really Do:

Automate all the (security) things, solve problems, and build solutions

Favorite Quote:

"A man who carries a cat by the tail learns a lesson he can learn in no other way."

— Mark Twain
