I’m JP Toto, a software developer, sometimes speaker, and lover of cured meats. I used to work in big consulting but have recently found wonderful home at a small software company called Wildbit. We have three excellent products; Beanstalk, Postmark, and dploy. You should try them!

Working on Postmark keeps me pretty busy and has given me the opportunity to explore a lot of modern API implementations. APIs are one of my keenest interests right now and I try to read up on and follow as many API resources as possible.

I’m a fan of open source and try to contribute to projects as much as possible – which is never often enough. There are some projects I work on from time to time which you can read more about here.

Lately I’ve also been interested in big data. Storing all those emails and messages on Postmark is a tough challenge. Ultimately we decided to use Elasticsearch for most of our storage and index/search needs. Consequently I’ve developed some expertise which I’m hoping to pass on to others by way of this blog and a forthcoming course I’ll be authoring I have produced at Pluralsight.

If you’d like, you can connect with me on Linked In, Twitter, Google+, Github, Stack Overflow Careers, or Instagram. You can also email me directly:  jp at jptoto.jp.
