Simon Prickett

Hi - thanks for dropping by. I'm Simon Prickett, an experienced software professional.

I'm currently working as a Curriculum Engineer for Redis Labs where I develop course materials and accompanying example applications for our online Redis University courses. I'm the principal teacher for the Redis for JavaScript (Node.js) Developers course, and have also contributed to the Redis Streams and Redis for Java Developers courses.

Outside of my day job, I enjoy tinkering with Raspberry Pi and Arduino single board computers and building hardware projects with them. I recently acquired a BBC micro:bit and need to spend some time learning about that. I periodically write about IoT topics and speak at Meetup groups or conferences.

Check out my website at You can also find me as @simon_prickett on Twitter (account currently inactive), and in a few other places.
