Devops, go, docker, distributed systems and full stack design and development

Email me -



Devops and full stack design / development specialist — I've been at this game a long time, 30+ years and counting, seen new stuff come and go like the changing of the seasons. Been at the start of some cool stuff and used a hell of a lot more.

The last few years I've been full stack javascript all the way, Nodejs, nosql, redis, docker, golang, coreos server builds, cloud mapping, websockets, backbone, coffeescript, dustjs, AMD, CSS3, bootstrap, stylus, grunt, browserify — you know, the usual suspects.

Add to that lot mapping api's, oauth, linkedin, the design and implementation of fully distributed solutions based around 0MQ / ZeroMQ and well, you get the idea.

"Whatever the job takes" would be a good motto I guess. Hardware, software, systems design, content creation, even the odd bit of graphics and making the coffee when needed. Have to admit I'm no good at graphics design - simple stuff, maybe, but it's not my cup of tea.


Intuitive problem solving combined with end-to-end systems design and development skills allowing clients to maximise their investment in internet and web based technologies.
