Dafne Kiyui

DevOps & Javascript Developer

Pronouns: she/they; I'm Dafne, and there's no better way to describe me than as a huge tech nerd. I started scripting before I was able to even properly read, and have been using Linux for over half my life. I try to keep life quirky, and am always busy tinkering. Ask me about my latest project.
