/about me/

Yo, I'm Michael, a software engineer and fifth year CS undergraduate at Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria.

I have intermittent interests in a bunch of stuff like:

  • Running (one marathon and counting :))
  • FPGAs and CPU design
  • Generative art (with Processing)
  • Sci-Fi books (and all things Red Rising!)

About programming, my current interests are in storage, databases (internals and observability) and the challengesfun of distributed systems.

These days, I work mostly on PMM at Percona and help maintain SpinUp, an open-source "database-in-docker" orchestration tool.

I also contribute to:

  • Thanos - a highly available Prometheus setup with long-term storage capabilities.
  • MariaDB - an open-source relational database with MySQL compatibility..
Occasionally, I share the things I learn by publishing articles on the Twilio Blog, the LogRocket blog, and my personal blog.
