Hi, Ser Him Burners-Lee here.

Obviously, that's a pseudonym. I'm not a white, British computer scientist. I have not been knighted. I did not create the World Wide Web. Hell, I didn't even create the #BlackTechTwitter hashtag.

Nope, I'm just a Less Than Mediocre Software Developer that's trying to get better at this whole software developer thing. I'm a black girldad in the Western US, who's bounced around different roles for about a decade now. I work primarily with JavaScript and a few other languages, and right now I'm interested in learning more about Python and Rust. I affectionately refer to this stack (JavaScript/TypeScript, Python, Rust) as Mantis Shrimp Development™.

Anyway, gonna try to keep Learning in Public through this blog!
