Hi, I'm Panda!
Who am I?
That's a big question. I'm an all around queer nerd. I aspire (possibly naively!) to help make the world a better place, and to be friendly and kind to others. I sometimes (or often, if I'm honest with myself) take myself too seriously and I'm not as clever or knowledgable as I try to make myself out to be. I have green eyes, freckles, and long hair - sometimes a beard.
What do I like to do?
I have a few hobbies. I like making things (usually with web technologies), playing board and role playing games, travelling and trying out new things, and taking (mostly analogue) photos. I also enjoy listening to music, hiking, making pizza, and brewing coffee.
What about my work?
I've done a variety of things: mostly building websites, web apps, and developer platforms, and leading agile projects and teams. I work at the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) (part of UK Research and Inovation). Take a look at my résumé if you're interested in looking in more detail at my professional experience.
Where can you find me?
I share most of the code for my personal projects on @TickleThePanda at GitHub. If you want to chat (I hope you feel you can do), you can find me at @firstname.lastname@example.org on Mastodon. Or you can use this form to contact me.
What do you I want to share with you?
These are my projects I'd like to share with you. I share most things, no matter their state, and I've highlighted the ones I like the most.
