I'm David Reed. I am a software engineer at Slack, where I work on developer productivity for the Quip and Canvas products. I was previously at Salesforce, where I helped build the Cumulus Suite toolchain. Opinions expressed on this site are my own.

My passions include teaching and technical evangelism, open source, science fiction, classical languages, women's flat track roller derby, and gardening. I like writing Python and Rust, and my technical interests are in platform engineering and automation.

I'm not currently seeking new roles but you're always welcome to check out my resume.

I love receiving notes, questions, and feedback; various methods of contacting me are shown in the sidebar.

As a Salesforce employee, I'm unable to provide private consulting, but I love speaking to community groups and conferences.
