I'm a full time dad right now and will be for the next couple of years (It's 2016 as I write) so I mostly code for fun and to keep my hand in. As far as languages go my true love is python (with django if the project has significant backend requirements). That said, after 20 years of random occasional programming gigs I have made my peace with most other non MS languages (Perl excepted!). I'm happiest on linux but, having done a LOT of support work in heterogeneous environments I can find my way round Mac & PC's pretty well too.
I'm not really a gun for hire again til 2018/2019 but I want to keep my skills fresh and one should never say never. Consequently if you've got any small or interesting gigs going, esp for London based companies, get in touch via my website technicalbloke.com (and by phone on 07761-532-428 9am-9pm if a timely response is important).
