I'm Alex. I'm from Ashton-under-Lyne but now live in Huddersfield, UK. I enjoy coding, board games, drinking whisk(e)y and spending time with my wife, two boys and dog.
I'm in the tubes of the internets!
Or continue scrolling for a little bit more about me...
I enjoy coding. From the large system architecture & planning, all the way down to problem solving. There is something about the Eureka moment that
is intoxicating. I feel that with programming, I'll never stop learning, as there is always an area I know nothing about. That's what makes it so special!
I'm a tech and team lead with an informal approach to management, while still being the buck-stops-here and capable of offering technical direction where needed.
I'm a .NET focused software engineer and architect...

Pragmatic Problem Solver
Comfortable with CLI
I'm a big fan of board & card games. I love playing social deduction games such as One Night Werewolf, as well as the more in-depth,
strategy-heavy ones such as Wingspan, Letters from Whitechapel and Through The Ages: Civilization.
As also mentioned, when not at work drinking coffee and teas, I love Whisky.
I love a wide range of whisky, from the smooth Irish like Jamesons - to the heavy punch-you-in-the-face scotches like Ardbeg, Lagavulin and Laphroaig.
OK - Enough about me now.
