The blog of johnnyreilly ❤️🌻

What is this?

The meanderings and ramblings of a dev. 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...

I also write a (sort of) travel blog.

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!

You can email me.

What do I do?

I work on a number of open source projects including:

I also wrote the history of Definitely Typed.
