Name: Brian Gann

Brian Gann
Grafana Labs Senior Software Engineer Brian Gann

Current location/time zone: New Orleans, Louisiana, Central Time Zone.

What do you do at Grafana Labs? I work on everything plugin-related! I spend most of my time working on Enterprise plugins and supporting our open source plugins.

What open source projects do you contribute to? Grafana keeps me busy, and I’m always working on new visualizations to contribute.

What are your GitHub and Twitter handles? github: briangann twitter: @jepetlefeu

What do you like to do in your free time? I play the guitar and dabble in crypto mining.

Do you like to code in silence, with music or ambient noise on your headphones, or with people talking around you? Music, loud and no headphones!

What do you do to get “in the zone” when you code? Music helps, but writing test cases probably does more to get really focused.

What’s your coffee order? Café au lait, preferably from Café Du Monde.

What’s the last thing you binge-watched? True Blood (again!).

Spaces or tabs? Spaces!

What superhero powers do you wish you had (or do you have!)? Time bending would be handy!
