My name is David Jones.
I’m a forty-something programmer with a maths degree. I grew up knowing my bits from my bytes, though it wasn’t until I was in my twenties that I realised that in some communities a byte doesn’t have to have 8 bits. I’m keen to sharpen and practise my writing skills, hence this blog. Posts are generally extremely geeky and with a computer science / maths slant. I enjoy learning programming languages to contrast them, and it shows.
I’m a founding director of Climate Code Foundation, a registered non-profit whose goal is to promote public understanding of climate science. I’m a Scientific Programmer at SITraN in Sheffield.
I live in the Peak District; I rock-climb.
The title Code Monk was obligingly suggested by Richard Kistruck.
