I enjoy programming and the problem solving that it involves, I am actively involved in the open source community. In September 2010 I took the core course of RMU (Ruby Mendicant University) and am now a member of their Alumni. I also regularly attend the Scottish Ruby User Group and Royal Society of Hackers, Designer and Watchmakers.
I have been writing lightweight Java and Ruby applications for a few years now, As well as writing about using computer technology, Amaras is my platform for software releases and replacing my old blog
I also enjoy Landscape and Macro photography. I have previously exhibited at the Joe Cornish Gallery and won the Wolsingham show photography competition 2 years in a row.
