Hello!

This is the home page of Colin M. Strickland.

I'm a software developer, from the U.K.

I've done lots of consultancy work, was an insignificant cog in the expanding machine back during the original dot-com boom(and bust), and I worked at the grand old Internet Movie Database for five years or so; you can blame me for the message boards. I then spent a while as an independent software developer, mixing up consultancy, Mac programming, and occasional contract work. I moved on from there to spend a few years working in the operations section of Last.fm, helping to organise their data architecture. Then a short stint at Moonfruit building a microservices team. Next, I landed at the near-mythical Makeshift Studios, wrangling with Wrangler wherein I had a great adventure and learned many things. Late 2015 I departed to head the engineering team at Silicon Milkroundabout .

My actual-factual super-real email account is my initials, at this very domain.
