The blog of johnnyreilly ❤️🌻

What do I do?

I blog and work on open source software. My OSS has been used by GitHub! Some OSS I have worked on:

I wrote:

I was part of the merry band that started TypeScript Congress and was part of the initial Program Committee and an MC.

Some of my blogs are available on LogRocket

What is this?

The meanderings and ramblings of a software engineer. If you were wondering, the slightly egotistical-sounding title of this blog started life as a pun on ICANN. Not, if I'm honest, the finest joke in the world but I haven't yet thought of a better name and so here we are...

Who am I?

Long-time Londoner, born in Bristol and raised in Fleet. Developer, writer, hedge chopper extraordinaire, father, food botherer, Christian and husband to the most wonderful Geordie wife there ever was!

I write the occasional travel blog(ish) as well. My sister makes curtains and cushions!

You can email me.
