I am Derek.

I am a passionate, inquisitive, and self-taught software developer new to the industry. I find computer technology and all of its fields and facets fascinating, and I sincerely believe that one can study them their whole life while still learning new things almost every day!

In my free time, I read about tech and practice programming. Sometimes, I'll pick up my beloved acoustic guitar and fiddle around until I get bored. My daily driver OS is Debian, though I'll occasionally but begrudgingly boot Windows to play video games. Lately, I've been playing Cities: Skylines and honing my urbanist tendencies.
