About

Andrew Wippler’s Sketchpad is where I express my interests. I love Jesus, my family, and technology. My current interests are: (in no particular order)

  • Nicole and my 4 children
  • Linux
  • Fedora
  • Internet Safety
  • Amazon Web Services (AWS – same initials as this website 🙂 )
  • Coding
  • Church Management
  • SQL
  • Open Source
  • Vi/Vim
  • Reading
  • Documentation

From time-to-time I will post articles about things I am working on, have done, or something I want to do. My philosophy on technology is – Stay with the known. By this, I mean when new technology arises, keep it in training or development until it has become understood and known – then place it into production.

I currently hold the position of Director of Information Technology at Lancaster Baptist Church. I have done some interesting things such as: Setting up a controller website for the OpenSprinkler units we have, replacing digital signage, replacing a room reservation system, setting up a Puppet environment, deploying network monitoring solutions, and devising ways to cut costs.
