Hi! I’m Alex Fornuto, and I’m a Senior Technical Writer at Pantheon. I help maintain our documentation, and build the automation processes that test and deploy the docs from our GitHub repository to the site.
I’ve been a technical writer for about 7 years, and did all manner of tech support before that. My passion for good documentation stems from my passion for open-source software, where documentation is often overlooked, underserved, or ill-maintained.
I’m also an organizer for the WriteTheDocs NA conference, an avid Linux user, musician (when I find the time), and the household chef.
I’m interested in making sure Pantheon’s documentation is as good as it can be. That’s why we practice Docs As Code philosophy, and encourage our users to be subject matter experts, helping us iteratively improve our docs. It’s my goal that our project README is enough to enable anyone who wants to contribute, and if it’s not, it’s free to edit as well!
Ask me anything! I’m happy to talk about documentation, continuous integration, automated testing, Linux, heavy metal, and your favorite recipes.
