The personal blog of Adam Bull

About me

Hi there, my name is Adam Bull and I am a recovering .NET developer forging a new path in the wonderful world of Ruby on Rails. I am super stoked for what lies ahead.

I originally studied English Literature for my undergraduate degree way back in 2008 – lots of lofty discussions about postmodern poetry and national identity in the poetry of Philip Larkin – that kinda stuff. I had always thought that I was an “arty” person rather than a “techy” one so I spent most of my early life blinded by this assumption. And then I saw the light..

After finishing university, I decided that I’d like to get into programming having always been a dab hand at computer-y sort of stuff. I stumbled across the Computer Science MSc conversion course at the University of Hertfordshire in early 2012 and haven't looked back. I have been programming seriously coming up to 4 years now and I have learnt all sorts of weird & wonderful stuff.

I always like to experiment with new things; my ethos is to leave no stone unturned. I very much hold the polyglot developer mindset, and I think it’s important to have wide-ranging knowledge in a variety of programming languages and technologies.
