I'm Philip Borenstein. I write documentation for developers.
I'm available for work, both for short-term contracts, and for full-time work. I like working with people who are doing interesting things.
I'm a pretty good programmer, but I'm really a much better writer than I am a coder. Luckily for me, most coders are much better at coding than they are at writing.
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.
