About Me #
I’m CTO of AtomicJar, Inc. - we’re building cool things that will be announced very soon! Prior to this, I was a pinrcipal engineer at Skyscanner in London, with a focus on developer enablement and production platforms. Tech-wise, I’m interested in virtually everything but have particular interests in:
- Software quality and automated testing
- On the server side, Java and NodeJS
- Linux, Docker, and automated conﬁguration management
- iOS development
- Agile principles and the age-old challenge of how to make software development suck slightly less
Open source #
I have a handful of small projects on GitHub, but spend the majority of my focus on Testcontainers, a Docker-based tool to aid integrated testing in Java. I created Testcontainers a few years ago, and continue to work on it along with some other excellent contributors.
It’s become moderately popular, and has sprung forks in a number of other languages.
I’m @whichrich on Twitter.
I’m richnorth on keybase.io.
I have some open source projects on Github.
