Portrait of Tim Beadle

I’m a web software engineer with over 20 years’ experience, and I’ve worked in sectors from academic publishing, through small agencies to global online retailers and financial services.

I don’t really mind which technology is being used: I’ve used PHP, Coldfusion/Lucee, Javascript (both in the browser – jQuery, React, Angular – and on the server) and Python. I’m always keen to learn new languages and tech stacks.

I like to use Git for source control, and also for forensically discovering when something broke, and perhaps who broke it. Though not as glamorous as architecting new systems, I have become adept at maintaining, improving and bug-fixing legacy systems. I like automation, test tools, linters and scripting to help with the more repetitive aspects of software development.
