I'm rob, I make ... stuff

About me

I'm a developer interested in making web platforms and services. I'm a Senior Research Software Engineer at Open Lab, a cross-disciplinary research group at Newcastle University. I make technologies to support projects ranging from geolocation based tools through innovative platforms all the way to global WhatsApp games.

To make these projects happen I make use of a lot of technologies and methodologies. I'm a keen test driven developer and agile worker and always like to try out different frameworks. For instance this site uses Eleventy and Nunjucks with a sprinkle of Sass. I deploy all my projects I use Docker and I'm quite excited about Kubernetes at the moment.

My latest projects are always on GitHub and my latest ramblings are on Twitter.
