About ediblecode (Ian Routledge)
Manchester-based lead software engineer
I'm a lead software engineer, currently working at NICE in Manchester and living in The Heatons, a suburb of Stockport.
I've been focussing more on front-end at NICE recently, but originally I came from a .NET background. So I'm equally happy building accessible web applications as I am writing APIs and backends.
Tech-wise, the NICE Technology Radar gives a pretty good idea of the tech stack I've been working with over the past few years.
I've got 2 young children and 2 cats, so life can pretty hectic! I do try the odd side-project or contribute to open-source where I can, but I also appreciate work-life balance and downtime.
When I'm not coding my time is split between looking after the kids, watching rugby, baking or drinking good beer!
