Welcoming Larry Marburger to Papertrail

Posted by Troy Davis on

After more than 2 years of interacting with Larry Marburger as a
Papertrail customer, technologist, entrepreneur, and trusted friend, I’m incredibly pleased to welcome him to Papertrail.

Many users know and use a service which Larry helped create, CloudApp (cl.ly), for capturing screenshots and sharing files. In fact, we used CloudApp at Papertrail long before I knew Larry personally.

Opportunities often arrive in unusual forms and our job is simply to try not to get in the way. Such was the case here. When CloudApp became a Papertrail customer, I said hello, and in the 2 years since, Larry has been a sounding board for Papertrail’s product ideas. Helping make these ideas a reality was the logical next step.

His in-the-trenches experience with API design, Ruby, metrics, and performance optimizations, coupled with his experience as an entrepreneur and a customer, let Larry see a unique end-to-end view: what’s truly useful, how it should work, and how it should be implemented.

Larry resides in Harrisburg, PA with his wife and two kids. In his spare time… wait, he has two kids. Larry does find time to help maintain Ruby Bundler, listen to podcasts, and partake in the official Papertrail morning beverage. You may see him at Folklore Coffee in Elizabethtown, PA.

We’ve been fortunate to work with Larry as a customer and advisor and
we’re even more fortunate to welcome him to Papertrail as a contributor.
