Hi, I’m Scott

I’m a developer relations engineer working with Storyblok to create content that helps remove friction and educate around the headless CMS space.

I create content written in the blog here and educational videos supporting the written content.

I’m a second career dev that re-skilled from a VBA analyst developer role into web development.

I have been spending a lot of time working in Svelte and SvelteKit for, almost 2 years now, holding workshops and organising events in the form of the Svelte Society London events.

Check out the speaking section for more details about those!

I’m a massive fan of the Jamstack, with a wealth of knowledge working with Gatsby (the React framework).

Also, check out the portfolio section for more information.

Sectors I have worked in:

I have over ten years of experience working for large corporate organisations in Finance (Risk, Asset Management), Property, Oil & Gas and Lloyd’s insurance market.

As a web developer I’ve worked in government digital transformation and creative digital. I now work in the content management space with Storyblok.

My personality

I find it hard to identify my traits, so instead, I took the 16Personalities test; here are my results.

I like to think of myself as an easy to approach and friendly person.

My interests

I’m obsessed with watching anything to do with mechanical engineering and restorations on YouTube.

I play Borderlands 3 on Stadia, then Borderlands 1 and 2 on the Nintendo Switch.

Music I listen to

I’m a massive Drum and Bass fan. I have a Spotify playlist I like to listen to for coding with the title for which I stole from Phil Hawksworth:

Other playlists I’d recommend would be the UKF Drum and Bass Top 100:

Podcasts I listen to

I listen to many podcasts, here are some that I get a lot of value from that aren’t all code related:

Darknet Diaries

Stories of cyber threats/breaches that happened on the internet, these are stories from the past not covering current tech security. Super interesting to listen to.

Random But Memorable

From the makers of 1Password for security advice and a round-up of the latest security news.

Land of the Giants

Stories about big tech and how it’s changing the world, the latest series covers the food delivery industry.
