A headshot of Chris Allen Lane at DEFCON 25.

I’m a software engineer with expertise in full-stack web development, systems programming, and webapp pentesting. I have also taught in both the public and private sectors.

I’ve been programming professionally since 2006, and non-professionally since childhood. I’m proficient with many languages, but now mostly prefer Go.

I’m passionate about open-source, and like to think that I have a knack for building tools that people find useful. I’ve had the honor of leading other talented open-source developers as communities have formed around some of my popular projects.

I also like to work on non-technical projects when I have the time. I’ve recently had some successes with CNC milling, leatherworking, forming Kydex (a thermoplastic), and building an arcade cabinet. I need to do a better job of documenting those projects here.
