Hi, I’m Philip Kiely. I work on documentation, technical content, and developer experience at Baseten, an ML inference platform. I published Writing for Software Developers in 2020 and will publish another book before the next Game of Thrones comes out. I graduated from Grinnell College in May 2020 with a degree in computer science. I was a full-time software engineer for 38 nonconsecutive weeks (if you count internships). I am a martial artist and an avid reader.
