About Me

Who are you?

Hi! I'm Keeran. I live in sunny Cardiff, Wales, UK with my wife and 2 boys. I write, maintain and support software for a living.

I occassionally pick up a guitar, I play computer games and I like to dabble with the creative side of technology to decompress.

What do you do?

I am a Hubber, I work for GitHub.

I started out with PHP, Flash & Shockwave. Moved on to write Java applications (testing hadn't hit PHP then and the PragProg guys converted me), discovered Ruby in 2006 and switched immediately. I've worked with a few different platforms over the years, but always seem to come back to working with Ruby.

What the hell is a Technomage?

Well, first of all it's got nothing to do with the Babylon 5 race :). I chose the title because I thrive on trying to solve difficult problems using technology. I'm an apprentice because I'm always learning.
