I'm a software developer working in London. In the daytime, I'm head of programming at Tangent Labs, a London-based digital agency; while at night, I hack on personal projects and open-source software. To an outsider (like my wife), work and play appear identical.
I am a programming addict.
Most of work at Tangent revolves around e-commerce, using mainly Python but sometimes also PHP. To try and make my life easier, I wrote django-oscar, a domain-driven ecommerce framework for Django. My life temporarily got 34% easier until other annoyances rose up to fill the void.
I wrote and maintain commandlinefu.com.
See Github for other projects.
I have a PhD in Applied Mathematics from the University of Nottingham - you can read my thesis if you like.
There are a few papers out there based on my research:
- Sqrt(5):2 mode interactions on a square lattice
Int. J. Bif. and Chaos 14 11 3883-3897
D.M. Winterbottom [not available online]
- Oscillatory pattern formation with a conservation law
