John Calcote is currently employed by Fusion-io in Salt Lake City, Utah. He writes driver and management software for Fusion’s amazing solid-state storage devices.
Before that, John spent nearly 20 years as a software engineer for Novell. He worked on the Novell Cloud Security Services project and on everything from Novell eDirectory to the Bandit open-source identity components project. He runs the OpenXDAS and OpenSLP projects on sourceforge.net. He’s also active in the update-XDAS project of the Open Group security forum. He is active on several open source mailing lists including dnx, openslp, bandit, and the GNU Autotools mailing lists.
He loves the open source movement, and all that it stands for. In an effort to “give back” a little, he authored a book entitled, Autotools: A Practical Guide to GNU Autoconf, Automake, and Libtool, which was published in July of 2010 by No Starch Press.
