Bio

Hey, I'm Reece, a software developer based in Kent in the UK. I work in JavaScript, TypeScript, React, Jest, C# and SQL Server on a daily or near daily basis. I'm also a PSM I certified Scrum Master.

After working on corporate software for the last six years, I'm interested in a role where the software I help create has a positive impact on the world.

I am comfortable in a wide variety of languages and have written side projects in Go, Rust, Python, C and others.

Interests

Programming Languages

I wrote my own language in the summer of 2020 as a learning exercise and have since written another. I find all parts of that process fascinating and want to continue learning and experimenting with my own languages.

Rubik's Cube Speedsolving

I've known how to solve a Rubik's cube for years, but recently started trying to do it quickly. I'm still not that fast but it's a work in progress.

Music

I play guitar and bass and enjoy jamming with friends.
