Hey, I'm Kirk 👋🏾

I'm a full stack dev from the Caribbean who loves Functional programming and Domain Driven Development.

I got my start doing a lot of data driven work with VBA and Python.

Currently, I'm working with F#, C# and T-SQL (SQL Server) in the .NET ecosystem.

Also working with Elm, Typescript and React Native on the front-end.

Mostly I'm just trying to do good work and practice kindness in my habits.

What I've got going on

Recent talks and streams

Fuzz Testing in Typescript

Property Based Testing with Typescript

Virtual Coffee

Last but not least, I'm grateful to be a Community Maintainer at Virtual Coffee. It's a wonderful space where devs all over the world come together to support each other, give talks, share successes, and just be their real selves amongst encouraging peers. If you're interested in tech and looking for a wholesome space online, stop by anytime and say hello!


Currently available for remote work, technical writing, and conversations about code.

Feel free to reach out to I also frequent the Elm and F# slacks where you can find me as @Kirk Shillingford.

You can also find me on Twitter

Hope this finds you well.

    # Introduction
    This document serves as a way for this project's maintainers to document their process of getting their repository ready for [the 2020 Hacktoberfest]( alongside the [Virtual Coffee]( [Hacktoberfest Initiative]( We also hope this project continues beyond just Hacktoberfest, and so we thought it best to collect all the knowledge, resources and learnings we pick up along the way in one central place, both for our own reflection, as well as sometimes that others can use to create welcoming and valuable spaces for their own open source contributions.
    While we will try as best as possible to create a body of knowledge that is accessible and understandable to everyone who finds it, we hope you understand that this may not always be as comprehensive, current or exact as you may want to be. The language will be more candid that you might find in your typical technical documentation, and YMMV _(Your mileage may vary)_ will almost certainly come in to play. There may be some aspects of this template that you do not agree with at all, and that's okay. We're not about dogma here, just about good intent and prioritising empathy and communication over absolutisms.
