Howdy, I'm Harlin!

I'm a technical consultant at Formtek.

I work with Alfresco, Java, Python and JavaScript quite a bit. I'm also an unapologetic Ubuntu fanboy. I write about all that here.

I like this saying a lot: "Progress, not perfection."

About Me

I am Harlin Seritt. I work at Formtek. Formtek is an Alfresco (the company) partner. I work mainly with Alfresco (the software) but also do some other work there with the following languages/platforms:

I also set up environments for our QA testers:

I am also proficient with the following:

I got my start in the technology field relatively late. I didn't go to college until well after I got out of the military. I managed to get a CIS degree (AS) at Griffin Technical College in 2004 -- I was 35 years old. After that, things kind of took off from there. For my work history in this field, please have a look at my LinkedIn page.

Before working in technology
