I'm a Unix and programming-language enthusiast and musician, with a history
in Node development and devops. I'm passionate about free and open source
software, maintain dozens of tools and libraries with hundreds of thousands
of downloads per month, and have contributed to various projects and
organizations including Firefox, Webpack, Rancher, Koa, GitHub, and
Mastodon. In my spare time I like to work on my own toy languages, meditate,
and read Buddhist texts and Marxist theory.
I am comfortable with
CSS (preprocessors, CSS-in-JS),
CI/CD systems (Circle, Jenkins, TeamCity, GitHub Actions, CloudBuild),
testing tools (Selenium, Cypress, Pytest, Tape, Jest),
Kubernetes (Rancher, GKE, EKS),
Telemetry (EFK, CloudWatch, New Relic, Datadog, Sumo Logic),
Shell (and related console tools),
I would like to spend more time with Python and Go.
