Hi, I'm Elliot. I'm a Go developer based near Leeds, UK specialising in web service and application development.


The One with the Directory Structure and Manual Wiring
The Gopher, There and Back Again


My current role is lead developer over at icelolly.com, working on various backend systems written in Go. My main focuses so far have been promoting best practices, improving developer experience, and ensuring we have clean code. Despite working almost exclusively with Go these days, the bulk of my programming history has been spent with PHP. I've been working with Go since March, 2016.

In my spare time I like to work on many side projects of my own, and with friends. Depsite being afraid of heights, I climb (bouldering really). Every so often I take photos, and I occasionally enjoy gaming.
