Hi, I'm Val Packett! Big fan of the color purple. My pronouns are they/them or she/her, I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina πŸ‡¦πŸ‡· and with your help I work on Free and Open Source Software!

Over the years I've accumulated lots of experience all across the computing stack β€” from the web platform and desktop apps to device drivers, boot firmware, embedded systems, and even circuit board design. My interests include, in no particular order: typed functional programming, operating system kernels, device drivers, cross-platform portability, SIMD optimizations, sandboxing, offline-capable web applications, free desktop environments and their components… You can see these reflected in the projects and contribution stories below :)

There is no PGP key here because encrypted email is rather silly. If you'd like to report a sensitive security vulnerability in any of my projects, just message me on Signal or Matrix.

Maybe slightly less silly: aspe:val.packett.cool:DV7YKMH5QMHF5ZVU5UUSIXXXMI.
