About Fergus

By day I'm a Software Engineer and DevSecOps Consultant, and I've had the pleasure of being employed and contracted to multinationals, enterprises, production studios, startups, and agencies. During this time I've grappled with a variety of technologies in a variety of environments, including Healthcare, SaaS, and Finance.

I now work for myself, taking on contracts and working under my own company whilst using a whole plethora of different languages and technologies; like Docker, Kubernetes, Linux, CouchDB, Postgres, Golang, Javascript, PHP, Python... you get the message.

Outside of the office I'm an avid runner, photographer, reader, dreamer, and an aficionado for the oxford comma. I enjoy getting to grips with politics and current affairs - especially where there's a diplomatic or security angle..

Due to personal circumstances, I've become a big advocate for improving the mental health dialogue in the Tech industry, and breaking down stereotypes that are often sold to younger developers of running on "all-nighters" and caffeine. If this is something that strikes a chord with you, then please get in contact!

Mentoring

Since abandoning the comfort of a full time position and the continuity of a single team, I've also realised I've lost one of the more satisfying perks of a job: mentoring. The thrill of helping and actively taking a roll in someones personal and professional development is amazing, and I'd love to experience it again.

If you're beginning a journey in software development, feel worried about interviews, or simply need some need some words of advice then feel free to ping me an email.
