๐Ÿ‘‹ Hello, world!

My name is Brie Carranza. I am passionate about cats, sunflowers, emoji, OSINT, cybersecurity, making cool websites and DevOps tools. I love experimenting with new technologies and reading infosec writeups. I love asking (and answering) the question "...but can I do that in a CI pipeline?".

One of the things that makes me tick is explaining technology and helping people understand how to make a solution work for them. I enjoy being a leader and mentor and working to build other leaders.

You can learn more about me in my more formal bio on my LinkedIn page or in these talk and interview videos:

๐Ÿฑ HTTP Response Status Cats!

These cute cat pictures generated by Midjourney are a cute way to remind yourself what each HTTP status code means.

โŒจ๏ธ awesome-kinesis

This is one of the most popular repositories I have curated. It's an awesome list of projects, resources and references for Kinesis keyboard enthusiasts.


HELIANTHUS is a collection of photos I've taken of sunflowers that I have grown.

๐Ÿฅฃ Pastebin Bisque

I wrote a Python script that downloads all of a user's public Pastebin pastes. This solved a small problem I had and gave me a real opportunity to experiment with BeautifulSoup4.
