Richard Slater

I started writing code on a second hand ZX Spectrum before I was 10, then over the years, migrated from the Spectrum to Visual Basic on Windows. Though college I picked up TurboPascal and Delphi; University gave me the chance to work with Ada and Java, had the time to pick up some C, PHP, SQL, HTML, CSS and a few others along the way.

To make a living I am a consultant with Amido, we are relatively small London-based Start-up working on Identity and Systems Integration projects for some of the largest companies in London and the South-East of England. I live and breathe DevOps which means I am a vocal proponent of best practices for our software development teams focusing on , , Systems Thinking, Reducing Feedback Cycles, and . Professionally I have worked on a wide range of technologies from CoffeeScript to and from C# to HTML5 in both and .

If you think you might recognise my name, then it is likely we have interacted through the atom-editor tag on Stack Overflow, one of my open source projects or through my time as Lead Developer on EVEMon: A character manager for the MMORPG Game EVE Online. I'm a firm believer in Open Source and wherever possible I look to release code under free and open source licenses, you can take a look at some of my work on my GitHub, Amido's GitHub and atom.io.
