Hello World

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by.

Here are some rapid fire bullets about me:

  • 🇬🇧 I'm Tom, from the UK and currently live in Brighton.
  • 💼 I work on all things dev and product at Billing Better
  • ⚡️ I recently built Zeus - a tool where you can turn SQL queries into dashboards
  • 🤪 I'm a struggling French learner (my streak on Duolingo is one of my proudest accomplishments)
  • 🇫🇷 My partner is French which makes my French-speaking ability even more embarrassing.
  • ⌨️ My tech career began as a UX/UI designer at a startup studio. Over the years I transitioned to the development side (all things JavaScript) and haven't looked back!
  • 🧠 Self taught with some great mentors on the way - the learning never stops
  • ⚽️ Enjoy playing football and running in the South Downs 🌅 as often as I can!
  • 😺 My partner and I have a cat named Arnold who is a little monster.

In this blog, I'm going to explore the backend Javascript ecosystem with in-depth, project-based tutorials.

At the time of writing, I'm particularly interested in the following stack/tooling:

This blog is built-in Next.js leveraging Timothy's NextJS starter repo - thank you Timothy 🤟!
