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.
