I ❤️ York! Let's face it, what's not to love about this beautiful city? The picturesque cobbled streets, stunning medieval architecture, and the majestic York Minster create a beautiful and enchanting cityscape that captivates both residents and visitors.

For tech people like me, it’s a city that seamlessly combines career opportunities with an exceptional quality of life.

  1. Thriving Tech Scene: York’s tech ecosystem is vibrant. Startups, established companies, and research institutions collaborate to create an innovative environment. Whether you’re a software developer, data scientist, or hardware engineer, you’ll find ample opportunities to contribute and learn.

  2. Cutting-Edge Research: The University of York leads the way in quantum technologies. The York Centre for Quantum Technologies (YCQT) plays a crucial role in advancing quantum research and development. Additionally, York leads the Quantum Communications Hub, contributing to the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme. For tech enthusiasts interested in fields like quantum computing and communication, York offers exciting prospects.

  3. Quality of Life: York’s picturesque streets, ancient walls, and the iconic York Minster provide a backdrop for a fulfilling lifestyle. Yet, it’s also well-connected, with excellent transport links to major cities like Leeds and London. The balance between work and leisure is ideal for tech professionals seeking both career growth and personal well-being.

 stands out as a city where tech meets tradition, making it an excellent choice for those passionate about technology.

I've been lucky not just to live in York, but to work within the city as well, I spent a year working as Head of Development at Twelve Oaks Software right in the city centre, a bespoke software development company. I was responsible for the UK and Ugandan development team, consisting of around 12 developers and reporting directly to the CEO. 

I am an active member of the York Developers meetup groups, this is a charity that brings together the local tech community to support and foster innovation and collaboration. We host regular events providing a platform for developers, designers, and tech enthusiasts to share knowledge, showcase projects, and get to know each other. Meetups by the group feature expert talks, hands-on workshops, and hackathons. Anybody is welcome, as is the York way!

After all that tech stuff, take a trip to the gorgeous small village of Naburn, seek out the Blacksmiths Arms and have a pint in the beer garden (or by the real fire if it's a wet and cold day). And while you are there get your mobile from your pocket and check out the website, just one of many sites I have built recently.

So how can I help you? If you are in or around York and need a digital professional, maybe you have a gift shop in Fossgate that needs a new content-managed Umbraco or Shopify website, or you run a business in Clifton Moor that needs Digital Marketing or Project Management, or even just need some help with your SEO then I am your YorkshireTechy, talk to me!
