Hey, I'm Lou 👋 I've worked in tech and have been writing code for 10 years, first as a front-end engineer, later in cloud and platform, in internal developer experience teams. I've championed UX. Ran training courses. Mentored full stack students, made bad decisions, hosted meet-ups and community events, built financial applications that landed millions of dollars in funding, broke production on government websites, freelanced as a tech writer and marketer, worked in start ups, attempted to launch several apps myself, and built a decently popular blog and YouTube channel.
I currently work in product for Gitpod. I've written for many years on openupthecloud (read the mission). This website is my slice of the internet where I write letters to friends about tech, product, content marketing and/or life. I love connecting, so don’t be afraid to reach out: find me on Twitter and LinkedIn, or just book time in my calendar, speak soon!
