Hugh Watkins


👋 I'm Hugh Watkins.

I've been programming computers for 40 years, from back in the Apple II days. I'm primarily a backend developer, but have also done fullstack.

I have programmed in a variety of languages, C, C++, Java, Python, Ruby, Erlang and Elixir. My favorite language currently is Elixir, I enjoy functional programming and I think Liveview is a great way to develop web applications.

I also have a heavy background in Devops, running large Devops organizations. I started using AWS back in 2006 when they deployed S3, and have been using it ever since. I also use GCP for some projects.
