So, my company is now recruiting for a graduate. Trying to work out if I should hire a more experienced dev as well. Not sure if I can afford it yet but current workload would allow it. Developer friends: would you consider a lower wage for plenty of home working and flexibility?

Amazing bit of driftwood Jazzy and I found on the beach in Aberystwyth. Looks like a Van Gogh painting.

We have over 250 members which is pretty amazing. Low level of engagement though. Anyone got any ideas for things we can do to make this community really useful and to make it work for you guys?

Declan is an amazing guitarist - those of you on my Facebook will get this twice. So listen to it twice :D It's awesome.

And for a great charity.

Comedian, Geek & Weirdo
Introduction
I'm a geek & a comedian. Work at JCB as a contract developer during the day and gig as often as I can in the evenings & at weekends.

Have a lovely wife (Jem) and very funny daughter (Jazzy).

I have lots of Circles (far too many). Let me know if you want to be in one of these:
  • Comedy
  • Geeks
  • Writers
  • Wine & Whisky
  • Sci-fi & Fantasy
  • Burlesque
  • Dr. Who
  • People's Front of Judea
  • Mobile Dev
Geek: I'm interested in programming large-scale multi-tier websites, mobile development (Android, iOS & WP7).

Comedian: Whimsy peddler. Musical comedian. Creator of Gigatron 5000 (AI comedian) and generally silliness. Gigatron is currently resting.

Weirdo: Writer of poetry, hummer of songs, wearer of hats, grower of beards (during Winter - my wife has timeshare on my face).

Bragging rights
I once owned a pet chicken.
