For some of my recent professional work, you can browse my GitHub.
If you're curious about the variety of my experience, follow the links you find here.
I started programming in the 1980s, so retro code will always have a place in my heart.
My weekend coding for fun includes:
I cannot pay back the debts I owe to those who helped me grow as a programmer, but I can pay it foward by helping others.
Here are some resources I have created to help others learn to code.
I do a decent amount of programming in my free time Just to make my life easier. Don't expect mature open source projects, these are quick utilities.
- CLI Chart tool in Go Language
- Web Test Automation with RobotFramework
- Infrastructure as Code for Ansible to Manage AWS
I also do a decent amount of coding that simply amuses me. These aren't even good ideas, but I wanted them so I wrote them.
- Arduino C Code Bicycle Speedomoter
- Arduino C Code to make a Big Red Button press the Enter Key
My Small Contributions to Big Projects#
I have contributed in small ways to some big projects.
Thanks to GitHub listing them under my Arctic Vault Contributor profile badge, I know some of the most prominent packages that have accepted my pull requests. I don't remember exact details. I do recall that I have addressed some obnoxious errors with relatively trivial changes.
In may favorite case, I helped address an issue that had suffered months of optimization debate. My pull requst added a new message that said simply "This step may take upwards of ten minutes on the first run. Maybe go get a coffee."
I still sometimes reflect on the number of new users happily drinking a coffee instead of debugging and then re-opening that same issue.
