Aaron Opfer

I am Aaron Opfer. I'm from The Internet. I live in Chicago. I write software to make ends meet while waiting for a Star-Trek-esque Utopia to arrive.

I am a software developer who mostly specializes in real-time messaging and microservices. I've mostly worked at trading companies for the last six years. I love what I do every day. I also make music (as a hobby).

I like: Creative Commons, FLOSS, EFF, outer space, Daft Punk and the color orange.
