About Me

Hi, my name is Dave Thomas and Im a software engineer from the Uk. I work primarily in F# but also like to tinker with pretty much any interesting language. Im drawn to more functional languages like F#, Swift and Rust.

Have questions or suggestions? Feel free to ask me on Twitter.

Thanks for reading!
