Hello! I'm Alyssa Rock! 👋
I am a technical writer who is passionate about improving documentation in open source and designing community doc events that get people excited to contribute to docs.
🐙 I'm a community manager for the Good Docs Project, an open source community of software engineers and technical writers devoted to creating templates, tools, and resources for documentation in open source software.
📯 I work for VMware as a Staff Technical Writer where I often contribute to the Salt Project, a top 50 open source project.

❓ What does my GitHub handle mean, you ask? It's a quotation from Walt Whitman's Song of Myself, 52: "I too am not a bit tamed, I too am untranslatable, / I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world." Not only does it blend my interest in literature, but it's also a nod to my other passion of film. See Peter Weir's Dead Poet's Society (1989).
