I'm a freelancer working in the build/release/devops field on a number of large website applications and or in major enterprises. Usually its C# projects using Teamcity and MSBuild/Powershell and getting to Continuous deployment. Or just about anything else to get there. However you can be sure that Id much rather be Cycling, Skiing or Surfing and/or playing with all or any of my kids.
