Hi there 👋

I'm Erika Heidi (she/her), a creative developer and content creator passionate about open source, Linux, and PHP. I'm also a published author, conference speaker, and have been recently nominated GitHub Star.

I currently work as a Senior Technical Writer at DigitalOcean, where I write tutorials and other educational resources about Linux, systems administration, devOps, and PHP / Laravel.

I thoroughly enjoy working on experimental applications and small side projects. If coders had a style, I'd say mine is minimalist and/or indie.

Open source has always taken a special place in my heart, and what I like the most about it is the aspect of "learning in public", essentially sharing what you are working on and feel excited about, since it may be useful for other folks even if just as an inspiration. Here's some projects I'm excited about right now:

  • GDaisy - A templating system for dynamically generating images with PHP-GD.
  • Dynacover - A CLI app to dynamically generate and upload profile covers to your Twitter profile, showing latest followers and other information.
  • Minicli - A minimalist framework for command-line centric PHP apps.
  • Librarian - An experimental file-based CMS / markdown document indexer in PHP.

If you would like to support my open source work, consider becoming a sponsor. Also, consider sponsoring the awesome folks at
