Hi, I'm Derek 👋

I write docs and automate all the things!

I've been a systems engineer, DevOps engineer, and all-around automation toolmaker. I apply what I've learned to the world of documentation, where I'm passionate about making open source more accessible, creating technology to empower contributors, and making the Docs as Code approach a smoother experience. Some technologies I enjoy working with include Dendron, PowerShell, Python, Sphinx, Linux, Kubernetes / Docker, and Amazon Web Services (AWS).

    - WSLv2 has been giving me problems in Virtualbox 6.1, but WSLv1 works properly.
