Hey there! I'm Erika Heidi, a dev+ops turned writer. I create educational content for a variety of audiences, in different platforms. In my day job, I write tutorials for DigitalOcean. In my free time, I share tutorials and illustrated guides on my blog and on dev.to. I also like to present talks and live stream occasionally.
I'm very passionate about PHP and the community around it. Lately, I have been working more closely with Laravel and also with pure PHP in command line environments. I enjoy using a minimalist approach in most of the things I create, that's why I built Minicli, one of my favorite projects because it is dependency-free.
Working on open source is quite hard - specially when you have kids! Nobody has the time. But it's a passion I can't let go. Sometimes it's hard to justify it thou - that's why sponsoring open source creators is so important. As a token of my appreciation for sponsors, I'm sharing premium content and free printables on my content platform at eheidi.dev. GitHub sponsors have unlimited access to this content and are also featured in my home page.
Thank you all for your support!
