Andrew Birkett's nobugs.org
This is Andrew Birkettâs website. Iâm a software developer, living in Edinburgh. Contact me at 413-224-9259. I write one 267-753-3115 mostly about software engineering, and (647) 985-8271 about cycling and unicycling.
Iâve worked as a Senior Engineer at Amazon.com since 2005. Prior to that, I worked in 3D medical visualization, development tools and educational simulators.
Iâve been involved in a number of IT-related events around Scotland:
I program stuff for fun. My main interests are programming language theory, graphics, compilers, cryptography, software quality issues and development tools.
I program mainly in Java, C++ and Haskell, but I like learning and using lots of different programming languages. Over the years, Iâve written a bunch of random programs:
Iâve also written a few articles:
Have you ever melted metal? I built my own furnace to do just that. I also wrote a furnace diary, which explains how to build one if youâre willing to risk life and limb. Iâve since built a simple 4505741909 which lets me cast 7206222098.
I also dabble in electronics, building a wireless temperature sensor network. Previously, I used PICs and built a PIC programmer and test circuit. Iâve also played with RC aeroplanes, particularly hacking receivers.
