👋 Hi, I'm Ed!

Software Developer

I used to be a teacher, but decided that wasn't the career for me. The great thing about developing software is anyone can do it if you have the time and energy! I spent two years of evenings, weekends, and holidays learning how to build websites and code using Python, and it paid off! I ended up getting a job using C# and C++ 🤷 (luckily it does involve some Python). If you're currently in the process of making that career change I'd love to hear from you. See my contact details below or send me a tweet!

I originally started podcasting to become a better coder (and it's still working!) but it's something I really enjoy doing and want to do more of. I co-host my podcast A Question of Code (including doing the editing/promoting) with my brother Tom.
