It's pronounced Diane. At any given point I'm doing pick-at-least-two from data architecture, application development, and devops. Right now, I'm a site reliability engineer with Understory Weather. I've worked mostly with Java and Node.js, with a heavy focus on data and infrastructure.
In my spare time I maintain Massive.js, a data mapper for Node.js and PostgreSQL, among other miscellaneous projects. Sometimes I talk or volunteer at workshops. The most important programming book I've ever read is Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari's Anti-Oedipus, albeit possibly only because 1000 Plateaus is a doorstopper and I haven't had the time to work through the whole thing.
Outside software and semiotics, my interests include horror fiction & movies, surrealism, the fin de siècle Decadent movement, and related subjects.
