About Ash

My book Data Wrangling with JavaScript is now live:

https://www.manning.com/books/data-wrangling-with-javascript

I have a long history in software development with many years in apps, web apps, backends, serious games, simulations and VR. Making technology work for business is what I do: building bespoke software solutions that span multiple platforms.

I have years of experience managing development teams, preparing technical strategies and creation of software products. I can explain complicated technology to senior management. I have delivered cutting-edge products in fast-paced and high-pressure environments. I know how to focus and prioritize to get the important things done.

I am a passionate technologist and agile practitioner. I have had great success with TDD and am convinced of its ability to produce better code that stabilizes more quickly while being evolved rapidly. I’m a fan of functional programming and its potential for safety, predictability & concurrency.

I contribute to open source and have founded multiple industry groups.

I’m also a keen systems trader, currently trading stocks on the ASX.
