About me

Hi, I'm Deryck Hodge. 👋 I'm a programmer and software engineering leader based in a small town near Auburn, Alabama.

In my late teens and 20s, I was a professional musician and traveled the US and Canada in bands of my own and as a backup musician. Between tours, I managed to earn a BA in English. I've had a life-long love of stories, great writing, and language. I assumed I would write and teach, but then I discovered the web and programming.

Professionally, I've spent most of my career working remotely for companies like the Washington Post, Canonical, Dell, Amazon and currently, as an engineering manager at Disney Streaming. This is my personal site where I write about technology, entertainment, and all the things I'm a fan of.
