About me

My name is Gareth Oates and I am a senior consultant working for a consultancy firm in Oslo, Norway.  The idea behind this blog is to share what I've learned and my opinions and experiences with various different technologies and websites.

I have experience in many different areas of the technology stack, from database development and APIs, cloud infrastructure creation, devops pipeline setup and web development with sveltejs.

I also have a keen interest in cybersecurity and penetration testing.  

In my spare time, I like to listen to tech-related podcasts such as Reply-All and Darknet Diaries.

Outside of technology, I like to snowboard, watch movies and go for the occasional run.  Before covid-19 I enjoyed frequenting the local Brew Dog bar with friends for the weekly pub quiz.
