Mikhail Panchenko
Infrastructure Engineer, Urban Airship

Website | @mihasya

Mike works on distributed storage at Urban Airship (by way of SimpleGeo). His job entails figuring out how to store and query large amounts of data in a horizontally scalable data store, while ensuring that the system runs smooth as butter and is easy to operate.

Before that, he spent 3 years at Yahoo! performing a variet of roles. Initially hired to the Ops Tools team to work on infrastructure projects such as DNS automation, he then went on to spread his time around on automating abuse/spam prevention, rebuilding the offline batch processing system, optimizing database queries, building out high-profile integrations, and rescuing kittens at Flickr.

When not writing code, Mike spends his time playing soccer, occasionally giving talks at conferences, and learning about how computers work.
