I have an MSc in Software Engineering from the University of Oxford, but no undergraduate degree. If you’re interested in Cucumber, Perl, Python, Ruby, and Haskell, it’s possible you’ll find my dissertation interesting. I’ve worked for the BBC, The Guardian, and my most recent real job was running a 40 person team as CTO of Broadbean, a CareerBuilder-owned company that makes recruitment software.
