I'm Alex. I'm from Dukinfield, just west of Manchester, UK. I enjoy coding, board games, drinking whisk(e)y and spending time with my wife and two boys.
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 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 and with a desire to be one of the team, while still being the buck-stops-here and capable of offering
technical direction where needed.
I'm a .NET focused software engineer and architect...
ASP.NET Web API
... with a strong background in web development...
HTML5 & XHTML
SASS & LESS
... and plenty of DevOps...
... and the architectural and softer skills ...
TDD / Unit Testing
Pragmatic Problem Solver
Comfortable with CLI
... and I have inquisitive knowledge in some other random areas...
I'm a big fan of board & card games. I love playing social deduction games such as One Night Werewolf, Mafia De Cuba and
Secret Hitler. As well as the more in-depth, strategy-heavy ones such as Game Of Thrones, Alchemist and
Through The Ages: Civilization.
As also mentioned, when not at work drinking coffee and fruit "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 Laphroig.
OK - Enough about me now.
