Re: [asciidoc-wg] G'day from Australia

I guess I should say g'day too, since I am also from Australia. I have been lurking on the mailing list for a little while already but not introduced myself.

I am Paul King, involved mostly these days in the Apache Groovy programming language. Groovy extensively uses AsciiDoc for its documentation
and there is also an Asciidoctor Groovy DSL that allows to define Asciidoctor extensions in Groovy:
Though I have used AsciiDoc in other contexts too.

Initially, I am here mostly from personal interest but may later involve OCI (a company which sponsors some of the Groovy work I do)
or The Apache Software Foundation (with my VP Apache Groovy hat on).

Cheers, Paul.

Hi there folks

I'm Jared and have been a documentarian now for well over a decade (yikes).

I got a taste for open source docs tooling during my six year career at Red Hat. Asciidoctor began as a curiosity for me when Dan took up the challenge of lowering the barrier for engineers to contribute to docs without having to battle with DocBook XML.

But given the passionate community surrounding Asciidoctor and the flexibility of the mark up language I began to rely on it more every day.

I worked with a French developer on HubPress (open source fork-and-run asciidoctor blogging system) and have been spreading the word about AsciiDoc and Asciidoctor to anyone who will listen.

I want to be involved in this initiative because I want to see Asciidoctor adopted more widely, and become a standard that people smarter than me can use to further it's reach through software solutions.
