About

Hi! I'm Colin Gorrie. From academia to startup, from startup to agency, from agency to government, and from government back to startups (including one of my own), what I've learned is: code is code is code. No matter who writes it or what they write it for, code will always need to be changed, extended, and maintained. Clean code is a set of principles and practices for making that process as easy and as cheap as possible.

My background is in linguistics, which means that I am a self-taught developer and I love helping people get into the industry from unconventional backgrounds. It also means that I have an eye for the general patterns that transcend individual languages, and a passion for teaching others about them.

Finally, I love tea, owls, and inventing languages. If any of this sounds interesting to you, please get in touch.
