Hello World

About me

This is a bit of a re-iteration of the about section, however every website needs a Hello World post, so I must oblige.

I’m a 25 year old developer from Edinburgh, Scotland.

Currently working at PODFather building a SaaS application providing proof of delivery to various sectors around the UK. During my career I’ve matured from a Physics Graduate writing MATLAB into a Software Developer with a passion for clean, optimised code, design patterns, strongly typed languages, immutability, reproducible builds, and the web. I’m also an avid user of various flavours of Linux, with my favourite being Arch. My Arch desktop makes heavy use of dotfiles which you can find here. I’m also a fan of ChromeOS for the portability (and crostini). During work and spare time I’ve spent some time writing various programming languages (some more than others) including, but not limited to:

  • PHP5/7 (Symfony, Slim, Doctrine)
  • JavaScript (node + React + Vue)
  • Go
  • Python
  • Rust
