Hi it’s Richard here, a full-stack web developer from New Zealand. I build stuff mainly on JavaScript and Node.js

I’m also dabbler so sometimes I mess around with technologies like: Docker, Terraform, AWS Web Services, Linux configuration, CI, Bash scripting, Go, Rust, mobile development, networking, contracting - I’ve dabbled enough to understand a full stack system.

My curiosity in various areas of tech stack on/off my day job means I can to talk to and communicate effectively with people in other areas.

It is this communication skill which makes me a productive team member, not raw coding ability.

A few little bits about me:

  • I write code for the web
  • I am cool, not friendly because I am VERY friendly!
  • I put code on Github
  • I like to automate things with CI
