About

I am a software developer living near Glasgow, Scotland, and currently for iomart. I enjoy designing and running the platforms that execute my code almost as much as writing it. Nowadays, that is referred to as DevOps. For web / server stuff, I mainly use Go, with some Java, PHP and Python. For Windows development, C# is about the only option. I have iOS apps in the App Store written in Swift, and I have played with Android a few years back.

I used to be involved in the Openstack project, having made some small contributions to Swift as well as running an installation of it. I also attended the first five design summits.

Outside of work, I enjoy days out with the family and taking photos. But mostly, taking photos ­čśé

I try my best not to get political wherever possible, but I support digital rights, am totally against the Named Person nanny state. I also like a good fight with North Lanarkshire Council. School transport cuts.

Contact me on Keybase. Or Twitter, but Keybase is way cooler.
