About me

Hi! I'm Derek. I see you managed to find my website. I hope you find some value out of it. This is a project of mine that I have been working on in my spare time. I hope to add more material over time (the site is still in its infancy).

During the day I am a software developer currently working at a large financial services company. My primary focus has been on DevOps, SRE practices, and CI/CD. During the night I'm always trying to learn something new. Money can buy you things but time is something you can never get back, so you might as well use it to learn something you didn't know before!

My plan, if it comes to fruition, is to build some projects from the ground up and post them here. I have a couple of projects in mind. I want to solve some common problems in the industry.

That's about it for now!

If you're curious where to find me:

Here are some of my favorite quotes I've found over time:

Sometimes words are not needed, and the simplicity of expressing yourself through an art form is one of the best ways of communication. - Emmanual Jal
Do what makes you happy. Keep it simple. Do the research. Work hard. Look ahead. - Gary Vaynerchuk
