About me…

My name is Eoin Gallagher and I work for Automattic on Akismet.

I’m from Mayo, Ireland. It’s a wet part of the world but it’s home. I went to university in Galway, had a great time and picked up a degree in electronic and computer engineering along the way.

Started my career in controls & automation but after a couple of jobs, wound up in web development on a hunch that this area would suit me.

During the course of my daily routine, I come across neat coding techniques but sadly for me, I have a head like a sieve.

So I decided to start a blog to help me keep track of handy bits of code, guides and general tips that have dug me out of a hole at some stage.

If you find yourself here, I’d appreciate any feedback or corrections to any of the posts on the blog.
