About

I am Eric Saxby. I sometimes identify myself with the following words, among others: programmer, musician, human being, reader, writer, artist, traveller.

I currently work at Wanelo. In the past, I have worked at various institutions including art museums and galleries, banks and fashion startups. I have painted walls, operated hammer drills into sixty foot ceilings and helped carpenters by writing out what I thought was simple trigonometry. I have wired together power cables and managed not to kill myself. I written recursive shell scripts to transform large amounts of data into HTML via XSLT. I have shown art at several galleries, and at one point I tried to write and illustrate a graphic novel. More recently I have written web applications and system automation using various frameworks.

Things that I care about in my professional career: testing, refactoring, transparency, object orientation, repeatability, distributed applications, observability. I succeed at some more than others.
