About Me

This is the personal website of Evan Klitzke. I am a software engineer living and working in San Francisco. Mostly I use this space to talk about topics I find interesting in software engineering, but there are other subjects here as well.

I've been working as a software engineer at Uber since 2012. My current work focus is on Uber's software networking and RPC stack, but I've had my hands all over the Uber backend. I've written a few posts for the Uber Engineering Blog:

Previously I worked at Yelp and Google.

My computing interests include: x86 assembly hacking, Unix/Linux, Linux kernel internals, operating systems, databases, database internals, virtual memory, high performance socket programming, Emacs, functional programming, shell scripting, open source software, and ham radio.

Some of my personal interests include: motorcycles, aviation, bicycles, mechanical watches, music production, and economics.

Open Source

My username most places is eklitzke, including on GitHub. Some of the things I maintain there are under different organizations, including Pyflame.

I tend to lurk in some Debian and Fedora channels on the OFTC and Freenode IRC networks; my IRC nick is eck.
