Meet Netlify: Perry

Hi :wave: I’m Perry. I use he/him or they/them pronouns, and I encourage you to share yours too. I work on Community things here at Netlify, which includes spending a lot of time in this forum, but also means connecting with wider developer communities through facilitating meetups, sharing content, and creating a spaces where people of all backgrounds feel included and supported!

Before Netlify, I worked as a developer (starting in the late '90s), project/program manager, and teacher. I was the Faculty Lead at a prominent code school based in Portland and Seattle, where I got to work with a lot of people just starting to learn to code. Newbies and self-taught developers have a special place in my :heart: and always will!

I do a lot of public speaking and activism around making tech more accessible and inclusive.

I speak German and English, love to spend time outdoors, with friends at a bar, under a barbell, or behind a book.

See you around!


Hi, Glad to read your bio and very excited about your willingness to support the community. Thanks!

A post was split to a new topic: I’m not able to netlifi my application from signing up to realpagan,could you assist me with that

Guten Tag,

Hey, I was looking for help on a netlify functions error, I found this:

I was having the same issue. :confused:

BUT, I fixed it!

I cant reply to that guy or post in that thread for some reason, but have him modify his netlify.toml like this:

functions = “netlify/functions/”
publish = “src/”

instead of this:
publish = “src/”

The key here is that “netlify” part. Take it out and you get the same issue he had: couldnt reach the function from localhost.

#wont work:
functions = “functions/”

Have a good day!
