Hello!

👋🏻 I'm Chris

I’m a software engineer, architect and technical lead.

My pronouns are he/him

I believe

  • in designing systems that minimise carbon emissions and energy usage during their operational life.
  • in Ethical, inclusive, appropriate and sensible application of big data and AI.
  • in robust, yet pragmatic automated testing (100% test coverage is worthless if it doesn’t do what it was designed to do!).
  • in being accountable for the products you build.
  • in empowering users to achieve their goals, rather than mollycoddling them.
  • that engineers should own the "how", and help shape the "why".
  • that legacy code != bad code. Bad code was always bad. All code becomes legacy code eventually.
  • that tech debt should be managed carefully - not avoided at all costs, but not incurred without thought either.

My super powers include systems interface design and domain modelling, particularly for esoteric legacy systems.
