David Wickes

Having tried his hand at biology, academic philosopher, security guard, library van driver, copy writer and marketeer, Dave finally settled on software developer and has never looked back. An alumni of Makers Academy (August 2015), he has since gone on to work at Mergermarket where he develops microservices in JavaScript (NodeJS), Go, Groovy, Ruby and whatever else he can get his hands on.

He's obsessed with functional programming principles, even if he doesn't understand them very well, likes writing tests for everything, and enjoys learning different programming languages. In the rest of his spare time he dreams about hillwalking and mountaineering while strolling with his partner and his dog on Wimbledon Common, plays chess badly, and tries to work out how to whittle down his enormous board game collection.
