Marty Hernandez Avedon (he/they), Technical Writer and Contributor
I'm a writer and software developer from New York City. I've worked as a contractor for the Foundation. I also occasionally volunteer on the English Wikipedia, doing copy edits.
My current project involves improving documentation for the deployment pipeline. Earlier in 2019, I interned on a project to improve the Action API docs. In 2018, I apprenticed at Microsoft, on Azure team. Prior to coding, I used to write short web articles and do print design for local businesses and nonprofits.
Improvements to documentation describing the deployment pipeline
In collaboration with staff on the SRE and developer advocate teams, I will be assisting in improvements to the current deployment pipeline documentation.
