My name is Dave Hein. This is my personal site. There are many like it, but this one is mine.1

Here I write about various topics related to software development, especially automation of software development.

I make my living as a software developer, and I’m passionate about the practice of software development. I’ve been creating, maintaining and operating computer software and systems since 1981.


  • I’m using Jekyll to generate the blog portion of the site.
  • I’m using highlight.js for code highlighting.
  • I’m using some SVG icons from the Noun Project:
    • The Mail icon by iconoci, used in the footer of most pages
    • The right icon by Konstantinos Riginos, used as the toggle for hiding the comment section at the bottom of most pages.
  • The LinkedIn icon, in the footer of most pages, came from LinkedIn.
