Hi! My name is James (he/him) and I'm a Senior Software Engineer at The Financial Times.
I taught myself to code at the end of 2014 and since then I've worked for Marks & Spencer, uSwitch and Condé Nast.
For me, code is a means to and end and the most important part of any team/project/company is its people. I'm dedicated to providing inclusive experiences at every level and work on creating safe spaces for queer, trans, disabled and neurodiverse folk (and more!).
I myself am queer, trans and autistic.
🔭I’m currently working on internal tooling for Editors at the FT 🌱I’m currently learning Mathematics and GraphQL 🐦Tweet me at @varjmes

Although I chose to live a much quieter existence and stopped doing the following; you may know me from my international conference talks on Open Source, my work with Hoodie.js, as a co-founder of WeAllJS or as the founder of YourFirstPR.
