Hi, {{ preferred_name }}!

🖥️ I'm Sviat — an open source maintainer, contributor, and just a software hacker. 👨‍💻

🌄 By day, I'm a Principal Software Engineer at Ansible Core Engineering team. 🌅
🌇 And when the sun goes down, I maintain CherryPy and aiohttp. 🌆

Besides that, you may find my drive-by contributions to random projects I happen to use.
Also, I wrote the initial version of GitHub Pages deployment provider for Travis CI 😳

Nowadays, one of my main passions is automating away boring routines to bring back
the fun of human collaboration. Mechanical tasks must be done by robots! 🤖
To facilitate this, I'm developing a Python framework for writing GitHub Apps and
Actions called octomachinery 🐍

Besides that, I've made a few GitHub Actions to facilitate these goals:

I also like mentoring other people as well as learning from experiences and then
sharing them. If you got to this page because you are familiar with some of my
work, you know what to do 💰

Disclaimer: I don't currently plan to turn this into for-profit work with commitments
so please only send money if you enjoy what I already do and don't expect any sort
of special support. Not because I don't like helping people (I do! Love it!) but because
I simply don't have the mental capacity for this sort of thing.
In the future, though, I would love to try out having pair-programming session plans or
something involving code reviews and mentoring, but not yet...

Have a nice day y'all ❤️

P.S. If you'd rather send 💰 outside of GitHub, I've also got a Liberapay page:
