So an is in order, I suppose.

I'm a developer for open source projects like the :budgie: Budgie Desktop @BuddiesOfBudgie, and formerly a community maintainer for the Solus operating system. I'm also a student, currently pursuing a BS in Computer Science at UMBC.

I like space, video games, animation, open source software, computer hardware, and staying hydrated.

Running Fedora Silverblue, with @BuddiesOfBudgie, on my work laptop. Sooner rather than later on my desktop too. Built against rawhide via toolbox, with plans to backport to 36.

Soon (tm). The dogfooding has properly begun!

Actions is pretty nice to work with. It's fast, the results page is well laid out, and the YAML format is easy to work with.

My only major complaint is that the only images available are LTS releases. For developing software like , it would be much more useful to have non-LTS Ubuntu releases like 21.10 so we don't have to support lib versions from 2 years prior just to get Budgie to build in CI. Makes me miss .
