I Build Things

a computer-generated illustration of Chris McLeod

I’m a software developer with over 20 years of work experience, but I’ve been experimenting with technology and programming since I received my very first Commodore 64 in 1989. I’ve done everything from front-line IT support in small companies, through to leading development teams on key projects for industry and government.

Outside of work I’m a keen learner, having studied for – and earned – several certifications. I enjoy spending the rest of my free time immersed in one of my hobbies – more often than not miniature painting and tabletop wargaming.

What I can do

  • Frontend Web development, including React, Bootstrap, Angular, Tailwind, Eleventy.
  • Microsoft Azure certified, DevOps experience, Containerisation, virtualisation, and system administration.
  • Databases – RDBMS and NoSQL, Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence.
  • Backend systems, including .NET, Node.JS, PHP, REST and GraphQL.
  • Experienced team lead, mentor, and people manager.
