Christopher Gilbert


I am a Software Configuration Management Engineer at IDEXX Laboratories in Westbrook, Maine. I specialize in build and installer automation, data acquisition and analysis, and incorporating these into the software development lifecycle.

I develop in Java, PHP, and Python.

I write the semi-topical blog, focusing on software development and targeted at system administrators.

I am the creator of PyLoris, a scriptable, protocol-agnostic denial of service attack framework.

I am a maintainer for socksipy-branch, a SOCKS library for Python developers featuring native module wrapping.

I am the author of BitGirl, an award-wining IRC bot, written in Python.

I developed a proof-of-concept network RAID architecture, which was published on Hack a Day.

I have worked in the insurance, communications, and new-media industries. I have developed under ADA/HIPAA/FERPA requirements and audited other companies that operate under these regulations.
