Hi! 👋 I'm Ben - a mostly-self-taught tinkerer and Software Engineer.
I dabble in Golang, Typescript, Python, Lua, bits and pieces of C and various other languages and Infrastructure-as-Code tools (Terraform, Crossplane, k8s, CF/CDK etc). More recently I've been focused on CNC, CAD, CAM and 3D Printing, and I volunteer on the Millennium Machines design team, helping to improve the first-cut experience of new machine operators.
I use a lot of open-source software, and I like to contribute back to the projects that I use - as much on a personal level as a professional one. I'm not heavily involved with any in particular, but I pop up here and there with a PR or two when I find an annoyance that I think might affect others (the Boy Scout Rule) 👍
