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 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.

I've spent the last 15 years 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 and entertainment.

You can also find me on Twitter.
