About Me

Who are you?

<— That’s me, Pamela Dingle. I am a Senior Technical Architect at Ping Identity.  I work in the office of the CTO and I get paid to learn and know about existing and emerging trends and technologies, to understand customer concerns, to speak and blog and to geek out on SAML, WS-Trust, user-centric identity, and other cool things.  It’s the best job ever.

Are you sure you’re an Optimist??

As much as I like to rant, I do so because I think  that the world can be a better place.  We just have to figure out how to make it happen.

Why should we care what YOU think?

Feel free to care or not. I’m just enjoying this whole blogging thing.

What else should we know?

I am a girl. I am a geek. I am Canadian. I am a programmer by education, and a UNIX sys-admin by early training. I was an Enterprise identity systems integrator and architect for years before joining Ping Identity.  I have an open source project called the Pamela Project, where I write code around information cards.  I have been known to play a certain field game which involves a disc (aka a frisbee). I am an amateur webmaster in my spare time, and sometimes I try to take pretty pictures with my D-SLR.  You can follow me on Twitter as @pamelarosiedee.
