Dave Wilson

I am a software developer based in Derbyshire, UK.

What do I code in?

Lots of stuff over the last 25 years, but most recently:

  • JavaScript
    • React
    • Redux
  • GraphQL
  • C#
  • Python
  • Bash
  • SQL
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Business Central
  • Lisp and Scheme in various guises
    • Racket
    • Clojure
    • Chicken Scheme
    • Emacs Lisp
...The list goes on. My Github is a good place to start.


  • Linux
    • I have 20 years experience of using various distributions of Linux. I currently use Manjaro.
    • In my non-work life, Linux is all I use.
  • Docker. Love Docker.
  • Editing
    • I use Vim to edit my code. Failing that: VsCode with Vim keybindings.
  • Command line: I prefer to use the command line wherever possible:
    • Linux: I use Bash or zsh
    • Windows: I use Bash under Cygwin
    • Git: I do all my day-to-day usage of git from the command line
    • When I use the command line, I'm in command!
  • Meat and potatoes
    • Yes, I do all the stuff that almost goes without saying for a modern-day developer:
      • Json
      • Xml
      • Webs services in their various forms
      • ad nauseum...

A simple website

So why is this page so simple? There's no JavaScript at all! It's simple: I only need to send you a couple of kilobytes of HTML and CSS, rather than megabytes of JavaScript to get across what I'm saying.

And what am I trying to say? I don't know. I'm just a guy who loves to code.
