Purpose of this site
This site showcases some of my skills as applicable in a DevOps environment. To that end, I'm using some of the tools and follow the practices of the trade as I learned them even if they are entirely oversized for the task at hand.
The code for this website is publicly available in a version-controlled repository. Go ahead and click on the button in the top right to fork it in case you like what you see. The code passes a few simple automated checks before being automatically deployed from a CI/CD pipeline.
I am by no means a web developer or a graphics designer. I kindly ask that you don't judge me too harshly in that regard.
