Currently, I spend most of my attention and energy on two things: community management and moderation, and contributing to and creating various open-source projects.
As one of the community managers of the Quilt Project, a modding toolchain project primarily designed for Minecraft, I work on policies, guidelines and tooling that drives Quilt towards its goal of creating a healthy, diverse, multicultural community striving to accomodate all sorts of minorities, be they ethnic or racial minorities, sexual and/or gender-nonconfirming minorities, neurodivergent minorities, or any other group of people facing various challenges and adversities in world society.
My unique identity as a queer, lesbian Chinese trans woman with an international, multicultural mindset provides me with ample amounts of lived experience with diversifying communities beyond the dominant Western, mostly Anglophone, predominantly white, cis- and heteronormative culture, which is unfortunately still the sole major cultural environment in most tech-focused communities. I hope that, through my efforts, heterogeneous people from diverse backgrounds can find communities that I manage comfortable, and be free from having to mask their cultural heritage, like when I first ventured into international technical communities.
As an open-source contributor, I occasionally submit patches and pull requests to projects I find interesting, mostly in Rust, TypeScript and Kotlin. I also maintain Quilt’s community tooling, mainly its official website and its Developer Wiki, and sometimes its own Discord bot called Cozy. I also started some other random projects, one of which is a Rust rewrite of the
alien tool, originally a Perl utility script that converts Linux software packages between various formats (e.g.:
.tgz, …) for different package managers (e.g.:
I’m almost always coding something new, for existing projects or otherwise, and I can’t wait to show you more! For now, you’ll just have to wait for me to update this portfolio again sometime in the future…
