About Me

I'm a busy, busy bee.

I used to be a systems administrator and a release engineer. Then I became a librarian and archivist, as well as an open source programmer, a book reviewer, and independent scholar, a web accessibility advocate and programmer, and an instructor for Children's Literature 414, Fantasy and Science Fiction, at the Simmons College Center for the Study of Children's Literature.

I've cut down to a more manageable list these days, but I still am fascinated by, well, everything.

My Github profile looks a little sparse these days. My day job's work is all in private repos, and my Dreamwidth work, which quieted down for a while while I settled into my job at Safari, is currently taking the form of teaching myself Swift so I can write a Dreamwidth mobile app.

My blog, Ramblings on Librarianship, Technology, and Academia, and my twitter account, at [ profile] deborah_gu mostly cover programming, archives, librarianship, technology, accessibility, and children's / young adault literature.

Selected publications and presentations.
