Cyrus Dasadia has enjoyed tinkering with open source projects since 1996. He has been working as a Linux system administrator and part-time programmer for over a decade. He works at InMobi, where he loves designing tools and platforms. His love for MongoDB blossomed in 2013, when he was amazed by its ease of use and stability. Since then, almost all of his projects have been written with MongoDB as the primary backend. Cyrus is also the creator of an open source alert management system called CitoEngine. His spare time is devoted to trying to reverse-engineer software, playing computer games, or increasing his silliness quotient by watching reruns of Monty Python.
