I'm rob, I make ... stuff
I'm a developer interested in making web platforms and services. By day I'm a Research Software Engineer at Open Lab, a cross-disciplinary research group at Newcastle University. I make technologies to support researcher projects ranging from transport engagements through geolocation based tools 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. To host all my projects I use Docker and I'm quite excited about Kubernetes at the moment.
