#introduction message

I'm a computer #programmer I work for an #airline and I design and build their airline operations systems and integration layer on #aws. I know all kinds of weird stuff about airline messaging, network operations, ATC/ANSP, flight planning and load control. Programming is mostly in #java.

I'm also doing a #PhD in #AncientHistory & #Classics. I know, very different to my day job! I study #Latin #historiography ... mainly #Livy. Landscape & Geography is my thing.

Hi new people :3
#Amaroq is more or less stale at the moment. I had grand plans to overhaul a lot of it and get back up to feature parity with the platform but just honestly don’t have the bandwidth to jump back into it right now. Keep an eye on @tootapp it’s going to be a fantastic app when it’s done.

Like a pig with pinwheels on a zipline I am.

Now I am planning information gathering ahead of next week's senior staff meeting. Wheeeeeee.
