Union StUnion St

By Matt


What do you do?
Software Engineer, preferring Ruby @NHSChoices (nhs.uk), tech community outreach volunteer, Co-organiser at Sheffield Ruby User Group (shrug.org), Webmaster and Young Professional Representative at BCS South Yorkshire Branch (sy.bcs.org) and occasional trainer/speaker.

How did it start?
Being part of amazing companies which had the community outreach at their centre, I became inspired to give back as well and volunteer.

What are you working on at the moment?
At work, we are building Public Health England’s campaigns (Be Clear on Cancer, Smokefree, Start4Life), while in my spare time I am looking into funding and expanding some of the groups I am involved with.

What are you looking to get out of Union St?
Inspiration on the days when I work flexibly from Union St, plus opportunity to collaborate with other members in order to better reach the local tech community outside of working hours.
