About The Site¶
This is my personal website, so all opinions are my own. I made it to better document some of the helpful information I've compiled about a wide variety of topics, but also to show off some of the projects I've done that I think are neat.
Guide: macOS Setup
Suggested programs, utilities and settings for developers getting started on Mac. Including my clean and lightweight combination of ZSH plugins and utilities.
Project: Battery Backup
After being without power for a week, I built a ~13kwh battery backup system to cover the most important circuits in our house (fridge, network and some HVAC).
Smart Home: Architecture
A general overview of my smart home setup, powered by Home Assistant.
Who Am I¶
Hi, I'm Andrew LeCody. I am a maker, nerd, and a bunch of other labels that all boil down to: I like to learn and to build stuff. Professionally I am a Senior DevOps Engineer with experience at every layer, all the way down to hardware since I started my career working in datacenters. Outside of work I'm either learning, making stuff, playing video games, or camping/hiking/offroading. I helped start the Dallas Makerspace, serving on the Board of Directors and as President for the first 5 years of the organization.
I believe strongly in the power of collaboration, protection of human rights, and taking care of our environment.
