About Me •
I’m Philip Borenstein. I write documentation for developers.
- Here’s my resume (PDF | MS Word).
- Here’s my portfolio. It’ll give you an idea of the kinds of things I write.
- My contact info is at the bottom of this page.
I’m a pretty good programmer, but I’m really a much better writer than I am a coder.
To get around all that source code, I often build tools that help me collect information, generate content, make global changes, and so on. These days I build most of these tools as bash scripts, or as command-line tools in node.js.
I know my way around various versions of Unix (Darwin, SmartOS, FreeBSD, Linux), OS X, and Windows. I’ve run web sites, set up and maintained web servers, worked with various content management systems (WordPress, Kirby, Confluence, harpjs, idiosyncratic hand-built systems, etc.). I know more PHP than I ever intended to, and enough Ruby, Rails, and Python to get around and fix things. I speak at least three different dialects of Markdown.
