I am Rick West. Hi 👋.
I am a web developer, currently working at a local ecommerce company, and also currently studying Software Engineering at Sheffield Hallam University, as part of a Degree Apprenticeship.
I'm really passionate about learning and developing my skill-set and enjoy spending some free time keeping up to date with the latest industry news or tinkering on a side project.
I enjoy writing (here and on Medium), and try to inspire, encourage and immerse myself in the web development community where I can.
I made the transition in to tech following a 12 year career as a Plumbing and Heating Engineer and remain a qualified Gas Engineer 🔧!
Outside of work and coding, I enjoy boxing (watching from the comfort of my armchair), Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead but especially spending time with my wife, son and daughter. Family is everything.
