I'm Dylan Lacey, The Gentlehacker 🎩
Tell me more!
Specializing in developer outreach and activation for cloud platforms and developer tooling, I work world-wide from my home base in sunny Brisbane, Australia. I'm an entertaining speaker and educator with a deep understanding of Developer culture.
I write funny, informative blogs & tutorials; produce useful videos; speak & stream engagingly; and weaponize my fun, approachable mien to turn audiences into advocates. I write Ruby for love, TypeScript for money, Java when it's helpful and almost anything else if required; It's the outcome, not the tools, that matter!
I game, stream cooking and code over on Twitch, and am finishing up a Bachelor of Language and Linguistics majoring in Japanese; a Gentlehacker has to be well-rounded, after all.
not just a fantastic writer, team member, and super talented community builder; he’s one of the most genuine, funny and kind individuals I’ve had the pleasure of working with.
