Developer Educator, Aiven

Based in Cambridge, UK

Tibs has spent most of their career as a software developer, working in digital mapping, embedded Linux, and backend cloud services. At the start of 2022, they moved to Aiven and Developer Relations, where they get to learn about cool stuff and help others understand how to use it.

They are fascinated with documentation and how it is written, and have spoken on the history of text markup, and on mechanisms for automated "linting" of text.

They have attended PyCon UK since its inception, and ran the Cambridge Python User Group (CamPUG) from 2007-2022.
